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.

I am going on an expedition to The Philippines with The Holt School in July 2019. This expedition is organised by Adventure Lifesigns, and will involve mountain and jungle trekking, plus working as a volunteer on an environmental project to help a local community in The Philippines.
As part of my preparations for the Expedition, I have to raise nearly £4,000 to cover the cost of the trip, including flight, accomodation and all the logistical support on the Expedition.
As of July 2018, I have raised over £300 by working - car cleaning, gardening etc.
I am also hoping to raise some finance by doing a series of challenges. In June, I completed the full Wokingham Bikeathon, cycling nearly 40 miles in around 3 and a half hours.
My next challenge is the Jurassic Coast Ultra, a 50+ km walk from Poole to Weymouth, on Saturday 21 July.
