£212raised of £500 target by 5 supporters

    Weʼve raised £212 to help fund a trip to Zambia to work with The Book Bus

    Funded on Wednesday, 28th December 2016

    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.


    I have been selected to be part of a team of 10 girls who will go to Zambia with Girlguiding North West England in August 2017. We will be working with the charity The Book Bus, who encourage children to read and provide books to communities who have few. I have to raise £1820 to get there and I will be doing some fundraising here.

    Whilst we are there we will be working with local teachers and encouraging reading by working with small groups of children. We will also be encouraging reading by organising games, crafts and songs around book themes, and helping young people to improve their English through conversation and games.

    Schools in Zambia are often overcrowded and under resourced, sometimes with more than 80 children to one teacher. The only access most children have to reading is when the book bus visits the school, and therefore the work I will be doing is vital. I would love for you to donate and become part of my journey, thank you!

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
