£1,585raised of £5,000 target by 18 supporters

Weʼre raising £5,000 to fund a life-changing volunteering trip to Kenya with "Camp's International" in 2019, doing conservation, ecological & building projects.

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.


I have joined a charity called 'Camps International' and I will be part of a team that will go out to Kenya in the summer of 2019 for four weeks to build schools and houses for the rural poor in the country. I will also take part in ecological and conservation projects, such as tree planting, animal welfare, and beach clean-ups. The whole venture is self-funded and so I have to raise all the money to go through sponsorship. I have already received sponsorship for a recent duathlon, and for running in the Hull 10k. I have more triathlons and 10ks coming up, but I will also be organising other fund-raising events/activities.

It is a fantastic opportunity for me, to grow as a person and experience new cultures. But most importantly, it will be a small step towards helping the rural poor of Kenya to improve their lives, and to assist in protecting the amazing environment and wildlife of Kenya.

    At the beginning of September, me, my Dad and sister did the Yorkshire Three Peaks Walk. Sis had to bail with huge blisters after coming down the first mountain, but Dad and I continued on, through the rain and low cloud. Dad's back seized up going up the last mountain, so we finished outside 12 hours (when we were on course to finish inside 10.5h), and we finished in the dark, but finish we did!! Despite the pain, and missing the 12 hours target, we had great fun, and we are looking to do the National Three Peaks next year.

    5th Aug I completed the York 10k - one of the hottest days of the year. York is a great place to run; try it if you can. I managed it in 46 m 35 s (a little slower than I hoped) and managed to come 524th out of 4873 finishers. I made over £210 in sponsorship for that one race, with all the donations coming from my customers on my paper round, and from my Mum's Friday night badminton club. MANY THANKS to all who sponsored me - it means a lot.

    Last week, over four days, I set up a sweet and cake stall at the Carol Saunders Swim School here in York. I received a lot of support from the parents and swimmers. The cakes were baked by family friends and customers from my paper round.
