Weʼve raised £465 to help fund my Tring School supported World Challenge Trip to Sri Lanka in July 2018 by attempting the 'Yorkshire Three Peak' challenge
- Tring, UK
- Funded on Tuesday, 7th August 2018
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 signed up for the 2018 World Challenge trip last year, and have been really looking forward to it. I am excited about visiting a far off place like Sri Lanka!
I am looking forward to climbing Adam's Peak, trekking in the Knuckles Mountain Range, helping on a community project at a monastery and to see some wild animals up close for the first time. I am also hopeful of playing a game of cricket or two whilst there against some locals!!
I have spent the last 8 months attempting to raise money for this once in a life time trip; I have packed bags at local supermarkets, I have sold Ice Pops at local sports clubs, I have assisted in cake sales, and quiz nights, I have washed cars and helped with extra chores like dog walking and cleaning, I have even helped look after my grandparents garden allotment!!. My next challenge is the biggest challenge yet... completing the Yorkshire Three Peaks!!!!
I have been on several long weekend walks in preparation for this challenge, and it also gives me a great chance to test out some my World Challenge equipment. I will be attempting the Yorkshire Three Peaks over the May Bank Holiday weekend, and will keep you posted with some Facebook and Instagram pictures along the way... I would really appreciate it if you could support me.
