£190raised of £500 target by 8 supporters

Weʼre raising £500 to help children's charities in Uganda.

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 cut 11 inches off my hair in order to raise money for charities in Uganda. In October I am going to Uganda with my school, Withington Girls' School, to work with children's charities. Between us we aim to raise £7,000 which will all be spent on the materials we need for the work we do at each centre. The charities we are supporting include:

- The Glory B Nursery, part of the Small Steps Foundation Chairty which educates and supports children with learning disabilities in Uganda. My school has been involved for many years with this charity and we have so far built a playground and staff quarters. This year we are building a fence round the perimeter of the site to help keep the children safe.

- A Ugandan International NGO called Get Involved with African Street Children (GIASCO), a residential home for 23 street boys who are in education full time.

- A Ugandan girls' school (Wanyange Girls' School). We take with us supplies such as calculators and textbooks.

- A children's orphanage and the Home of Hope for severely disabled children.

So far, we have raised money for the charities through our fashion show but we are each raising money individually to add to the total. Cutting my hair was a big step as I have been growing it for years, but I am hoping my friends and family will support me by donating to my Uganda effort. I have also sent the eleven inches of hair to the Little Princess Trust to make wigs for children.
