Weʼve raised £60 to help fund my travel expenses for a year to HMS Unicorn.
- Dundee, UK
- Funded on Wednesday, 10th October 2018
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.
18 Months ago I was told I was fit for work after an ESA assessment. I then decided to work on my confidence and self esteem by finding somewhere I could volunteer. With the help of The Dundee Health and Social Care Partnership I found a place on HMS Unicorn, to help with marketing and promoting the ship and the events held on her.
The Partnership helped with travelling expenses for the first 3 months and my confidence started to raise as I felt at home on the ship and working with the staff.
After the the 3 months I started to struggle finding money so I could travel to the ship, only being able to do the occasional event flyer and sending it by email.
May 17th of this year I received more funding from Project Scotland, again for 3 months, which runs out in July.
I've decided to do this crowd funding so I don't need to go searching for funding and so I can go to the ship which will raise my confidence, self esteem and will allow me to build skills for when I'm ready to go back to work.

A wise man once said to me, sometimes all you need is a break. He gave me one and I havnt looked back. Hard work takes you to the next step, but I hope others will get behind you too.
