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 am fundraising for a trip for 12 students from St Ambrose College to visit Sierra Leone where we will be living and working alongside pupils at our sister school, St Ambrose Academy in Freetown.
St Ambrose Academy is a school for 300 pupils which was set up in 2010 as a joint partnership with St Ambrose College and other Christian Brother Schools. St Ambrose College now sponsor 10 girls who were orphaned by Ebola to enable them to continue to attend the school.
The aim of our trip is to experience first-hand the social and cultural realities of life in Sierra Leone and to raise awareness of the continued difficulties that face the community and country as a whole following the Ebola crisis. The emphasis will be on experiencing the diverse aspects of the community including work, domestic life, education, social outreach, poverty, recreation and religion. We have a specific target of assisting to fund and construct a new well at the school.
I am completing a number of cycling challenges over the next few months with the aim of cycling in excess of 100 miles (the distance between the 3 Christian Brother Schools in the North West of England).
My first challenge will be to complete the 50 mile "Ride Chester" on 11 June 2017, 3 days after the end of my AS exams.
Any contribution that you feel able to make would be gratefully received not only by myself but also the children at St Ambrose Academy in Freetown.
I will keep this page updated with details of my progress.
