    What is crowdfunding?

    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.

    Story

    In December 2017, I will be one of 10 students from Denefield school attending a trip to Ghana where we will be working with Partner West Africa. In order to fundraise for this trip, I will be running the Henley 10k on Sunday 10th September 2017! By raising enough money, I will be able to travel to Ghana and make the difference to so many Ghanaian children's lives. Partner West Africa's centre in Ghana has saved many lives and the opportunity to visit and participate in some volunteer work to make the difference is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Some of the work that I will be completing involves working in classrooms at a local school, helping organise and coordinate school events including the annual Christmas Party. If enough funding is available, we may be involved in the creation of a new play area for children which would make an astronomical difference to their lives! Another opportunity to work with young Ghanaian people will involve a visit to some of the poorest areas in Accra (Ghana's capital) where we will be able to deliver clothes and food to those in need. This is also an opportunity to learn about their lives and witness their culture. By running the Henley 10k in September, I will be challenging myself to do something I have never done before and will be putting myself to the test mentally and physically. By raising money from running the 10k along with other fundraising activities that I will be completing in school and other activities that I may choose to take part in before I fly out to Ghana in December to do all that I can to make a difference and change lives!!
