Weʼve raised £0 to Help fund a working holiday to Australia

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I recently have been given the opportunity to work in Australia picking mangoes on a fruit farm. I am a 23 year old British male who has always dreamt of travelling to and exploring Australia, and what could be better than combining this with good honest work to make ends meet?
I live in the British countryside, Devon to be precise. My life thus far has been plagued by mental health issues which have held back my true potential. I am really struggling to find myself currently, I feel very lost in the world and something must change. A move to the other side of the world may sound extreme, but I think it could be exactly what I need in order to learn more about myself, the world, and gain a greater sense of responsibility.
Crowdfunding may not seem like the best way to try and achieve this dream, but I am currently out of employment due to my ill health, and I have no family members willing to help me achieve my goal.
I have asked for £2500 to cover costs of a travel visa, passport, flight, and the excess for security reasons to ensure that I can support myself between arriving in Australia and starting work.
If this even comes close to getting any support I'll be a very happy man.
