Weʼve raised £140 to work with community groups in Sri Lanka.

- Funded on Thursday, 30th November 2017
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.
Debbie, Claire, Kim and Jane are Guide Leaders from Somerset who are taking a group of 16 (14-18 year olds) to Sri Lanka in Easter 2018. Whilst there, we will be undertaking voluntary work in a range of community settings such as; primary schools, community centres and care facilities. We need to individually raise £2,000 to travel to Sri Lanka.
We will be cycling the equivalent distance to Sri Lanka on bikes at Yeovil Personal Fitness Club. We need to cycle 8,778.84km and are hoping to achieve this in just 5 DAYS! The gym is not only providing us with the bikes, but they are also taking this on as their Summer Challenge. Thanks to their generosity, we will be giving a contribution to Rob's 1 million step challenge for Diabetes UK.
As a group, we are also supporting a local charity called School in a Bag. The charity provides bags which are full of school equipment that gives children the opportunity to gain a good education.
If you feel you would be able to sponsor our cycle challenge that would be FAB! Thank you :)
