Weʼre raising £3,000 to fund my world challenge expedition to borneo, summer 2019
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.
World Challenge was set up 30 years ago to build the life skills young people need to live a life of courage, kindness and adventure.
In 2019 I hope to travel with World Challenge to the jungles of Borneo to work on a nature conservation initiative and a rural community clean water project. I will be travelling with a team of 15 students from school and together we will undertake a jungle skills training camp and attempt to summit Mount Kinabalu (13,400ft). The expedition will be a fantastic opportunity to learn new skills, better understand the world in which we live and work as a team to overcome the obstacles and challenges that come our way.
Fundraising for the Borneo trip is just once of the challenges that we face, and to this end a group of us have decided to undertake the National Three Peaks Challenge at the end of October. This will involve us having to research, plan and undertake an attempt to climb Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis, the highest mountains in Wales, England and Scotland, over three days at the end of October. The challenge will push us to our physical limits and our success will be largely depending on good planning and team work.
If you are able to support me by sponsoring our Three Peaks Challenge I would be extremely grateful. I hope to raise sufficient funds to not only cover our mountain adventure in October but, more importantly, to contribute to my fundraising target for my World Challenge trip next summer.
Thank you in advance for your support.
