    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.


    Your donations will go towards the costs of providing materials and equipment used in the schools and on the conservation projects. Like most volunteering organisations they hope volunteers can raise their own funds to cover the costs of the 4 week programme and that is why I am asking for your help. I have also asked WH Smith for some books, pencils and paper to take over with me and they have agreed to provide me with a selection of school books and other items.

      I am already to go and hope the Beast from the East doesn’t scupper take off. Thank you to everyone for all your donations and support. Jack for his very bright tee shirts and reusable water bottle, camping towel and much more, all my friends and family who have given me the encouragement to get out and do this and all of you who have donated money and goodies for me to take over for the children; hope BA doesn’t charge me for the heavy suitcase! See you all on my return.

      The New Year is off to a good start with my fundraising for the children of Quepos. Many thanks to all my friends who have been so kind in donating to this worthy cause. Only 8 weeks before I fly over there to join the team of extraordinary people who do a wonderful job in helping these children get a great start in life. I am really looking forward to seeing their smiling faces.

    There are so many children who do not get the opportunity to learn that we take for granted in the Uk. Let’s try and give these children a step to learning by empowering them to feel good about themselves. I am looking to take some school books and pencils and pens with me.
