Weʼre raising £2,000 to help build a school for a remote farming community in Zambia
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.
We are raising money to help build and equip a school for a remote farming community in Zambia. This school will provide an education for these children that they would otherwise not receive, as although there are state-run schools, the cost of transportation to them is prohibitive to the members of this community. The education that the children will receive from the school we build will be of the same standard as the state-run schools, and the children will earn the same nationally recognised qualifications.
In the summer of 2018, a group of 6th formers from a school in Sutton, Surrey, will be travelling out to Zambia, to help with the construction of the school. As you can imagine, this will be very labour intensive, but hugely rewarding for both the farming community and the students undertaking this task.
We would be immensely grateful for any donations you feel able to give.
Thank you for spending the time reading!

On Sunday 3rd December, Flynn will be doing a sponsored event to raise money for this cause. We are taking Zak (our youngest) to Lapland (absolutely top secret - Zak has no idea we are going!) & Flynn has decided to combine this trip with a slightly insane plan of going in a t shirt & shorts. Crazy child. The temperature there is currently -9C, with wind chill it's -12C. I will of course add photos to this page! If you feel you would like to support Flynn in this madness, we would greatly appreciate any sponsors/ donations! Thanks!
