Weʼre raising £500 to raise funds for Cotswold House in Winsford, which provides quality supported accommodation for homeless women aged 16 to 36 years.
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.
2018 marks the 100-year anniversary of women securing a vote in parliamentary elections when women supported other women to achieve independence. It also marks the year I’ve turned 18 and embrace the responsibilities of adulthood.
As part of my journey to independence I am spending Christmas and New Year on an African adventure, travelling more than 18,000 miles alone to meet with a team of strangers from around the world who will venture from Namibia to Cape Town, South Africa. The trip will involve me travelling from Manchester to Johannesburg, via Amsterdam before going on to Windhoek, the capital of Namibia. It will involve trekking, camping, learning new skills and getting to know lots of new people.
I would like to use the opportunity to celebrate other young women like me who are journeying towards independence - to raise funds to Cotswold House.
Cotswold House provides good quality supported accommodation for homeless women aged 16 to 36 years in Winsford. Many of its residents are overcoming personal challenges and are on their own personal journeys to become more independent.
The trip is entirely self-funded and 100% of all donations will be distributed to Cotswold House via Weaver Vale Housing Trust.
Please sponsor me so that I can donate funds to help these girls to succeed in their journey . Thank you - all contributions very welcome.
