Weʼre raising £800 to Fund my Lowland Leader professional qualification while I am unable to work as a walking guide due to COVID19 restrictions
- Fowey, Cornwall
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The COVID19 restrictions have had an extreme effect on the tourist industry in Cornwall in general, and on my income as a guided walk leader in particular.
I am left with a great deal of time on my hands which I'd like to put to good use improving my professional qualifications by adding the Lowland Leader qualification. I cannot fund this myself as I must prioritise living expenses.
I will use this recognised qualification to access booking channels currently not available to me, so improving my chances of recovering my earnings more quickly after restrictions are lifted.
I am looking to raise sufficient to fund:
• Registration with Mountain Training, the awarding body
• Two 2-day courses for training and assessment for the Lowland Leader qualification
• Travel and accommodation expenses while attending these courses at the nearest provider, approximately 120 miles away from home
If I raise any more than needed for the above, I will put this towards a suitable outdoor activity charitable project.
