Weʼve raised £200 to help children in need
- Funded on Friday, 4th January 2019
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.
I am fortunate enough to be picked by my school to go on a trip to Zambia in Africa in 2019. Over the past few years my school have been working very closely with the Tag Rugby Trust to send students out to Africa to teach the young children how to play tag rugby. We use rugby as a vehicle to “Build Futures” through relevant and challenging opportunities for children and adults alike Sustainability and local ownership is central to our work .At the end of the week we will be holding a tournament for all the children to participate in.
I recently watched a very touching short film of where we will be going, see the children who have nothing but are still smiling & being happy made me want to do this even more. We will be helping in the local community plant fruit & vegetables ,painting ,building , even helping carry water back to the village to the water wells.
At the end of my once in a life time trip I will have amazing opportunities to go see Victoria falls, go on safari to see the beautiful animals & a boat trip down the Zambezi river!
I have over a year to fundraise this money ,I will be participating in different activities to help raise the money.
While I am out there I will be staying in hotel called faulty towers!!!!
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity & I would appreciate it so much if you could help donate money to help me forfil my dream to go,I will post photos ,keep you all updated on different activities that I will take part in over the 2 weeks ! Really hope you can help make this come true for me .
Thank you for taking the time on reading my story :-)
