    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.

    Story

    In summer 2017 I will be travelling to Indonesia to trek across the vast island country, experience the local culture and engage in unique and sustainable projects that will have a genuine and positive impact on the local community.

    Although I am yet to receive final details of the projects I will be involved in, they are typically environmental, conservation or community based projects. In the past these have included:
    - building playgrounds, concreting paths and repairing bridges in rural communities
    - planting trees and greenhouse construction, building walkways and refurbishing children's homes
    - rebuilding flood damaged houses, creating educational mural designs, building classrooms

    My projects will be undertaken in consultation with the local community to ensure their needs are met, and while there I hope to become immersed into their culture and rural life.

    My Indonesian adventure is graded as moderate to strenuous. I can expect to have some very challenging days when trekking and camping out, either across the volcanic island of Flores, or through the steamy jungles in the north of Sumatra.

    Before I depart next July, I am raising funds to cover the cost of my travel. So far I have collected over £500 by:
    - saving all my Birthday, Christmas and pocket money since November 2015
    - working as a labourer alongside an experienced commercial gardener
    - acting as a marshal at local running events, including the Dorking Half Marathon
    - regularly assisting as a swimming teacher for Sunday morning classes at Caterham School

    However on Sunday 4th December 2016 I will be undertaking a 10km sponsored run in Regent's Park, London. I am looking to raise as much money as I can to supplement the funds I have already saved towards my goal and I would be extremely grateful if you would be willing to sponsor me.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this and I promise I will let you know how I get on in Indonesia.

    Luke
