raised of £1,500 target by 56 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,635 to help fund my World Challenge to Borneo and support the important work of the Semenggoh Wildlife Centre.

    Funded on Friday, 17th December 2021

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    As some of you may know, I plan to undertake a World Challenge expedition to Borneo, Malaysia in July 2022. Part of the idea of the expedition is for students to raise their own funds, not to rely on the 'bank of Mum and Dad'.

    In order to raise funds to help get me there and support the important work of the Semenggoh Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre in Borneo, I am swimming the length of England's longest lake, Lake Windermere. The funds raised by my 10.5 mile swim will be split equally - half will help me to cover the cost of my expedition and half will be donated to the Semmengoh Wildlife Centre, who help rehabilitate and protect orangutans; a species whose natural habitat is under serious threat from human activity.

    If you are feeling generous and would like to help me complete my expedition, whilst also supporting the crucial conservation and rehabilitation work of the Semenggoh Centre, please donate to my cause. If you can't donate, but would like to help in another way, please share this page. Thank you!

      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 nonprofit.

      The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
