£3,515raised of £2,500 target by 113 supporters

    Weʼve raised £3,515 to support a small orphanage in Southern India, in memory of my big brother Henry.

    Funded on Wednesday, 3rd October 2018

    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.


    So In 2014 my brother, Henry, travelled with a group of others to Volunteer in a small orphanage in Southern India for just under a month. He instantly fell in love with the project, helping rebuild the lives of many underprivileged families. The children he was working with are some of the most deprived children in the world, so your donation towards this charity goes very far and would help them more than you can imagine.

    Henry became really passionate about the cause upon his return and he promised the kids and staff he would return when he got the chance.

    In November 2016 we received the devastating news that Henry had passed away unexpectedly in Bath, UK. The beautiful city in which attended the university.

    So in his honour and to keep his promise to the orphanage, we will donate this money to them, to help them grow, educate them and keep them safe in the environment that they currently live in.

    So myself and some family and friends have decided to Run a Full Tough Mudder in July this year, something H would have loved to do!

    Any Donation is greatly appreciated as this is a charity close to our hearts.

        Finn still talks about his Burke 'big brothers' led by Henry, and remembers how they all showered him with kindness, and played countless games outdoors with him.
