Weʼre raising £250 to send Polly on a trip to visit relatives in Europe after her GCSEs. She loves languages but hasn't had much chance to travel.
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.
Polly loves language and other cultures. She longs to travel but hasn't had much opportunity as we haven't been able to fund it for her. She's been so good about this but clearly dreams about trips abroad, and now we'd like to give her a really special trip to mark the end of her time at school. We're looking for donations to fund the flights and train journeys, as she will be staying with relatives at each destination.
Polly spends lots of time learning languages and wants to study them at university. This trip would give her the perfect opportunity to try out speaking European languages including French, at which she is becoming quite proficient. She's also learning Spanish, German, Dutch, Italian, Japanese, Greek, Turkish, Gaelic, Arabic and on and on!
Year 11 hasn't been easy for Polly, who has suffered from stress and illness on top of living with coeliac disease. A trip to Europe with her big sister Jenni would be something very special. She's very keen to meet her relatives in Alsace, visit her brother in Germany or Finland and go further afield if possible. The sky's the limit and we'd love her to see that this summer.
