Weʼre raising £800 to send Lucy Tongue to perform in Tenerife
- Dinnington, UK
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.
13 year old Lucy Tongue, has danced since being 2 years old and dreams of performing professionally. Lucy performs with Gillian Banks Theatre School and has been there for the past 11 years, growing from strength to strength. Lucy currently performs intermediate tap, grade 5 jazz, grade 4 & point ballet, ariel silks, cheerleading, singing, irish, ballroom, line dancing, gymnastics and musical theatre.
She has been given the opportunity to perform overseas with the theatre school in Tenerife to raise money for charity, which is a huge opportunity for Lucy.
The other performers from the school have been sponsored to take part as they are over the age of 16, covering their flights and all inclusive accommodation. Unfotunatley due to Lucy's age, she does not qualify for sponsorship, leaving Lucy's parents to fund the entire trip, including having to pay for one of them to accompany her on the trip. This will amount to £1670, to give her this amazing opportunity. Resulting in this crowdfunding page being setup to help raise the £800 needed to get Lucy to Tenerife!
Any help would be hugely appreciated for this determined, focused and talented young dancer!
