    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Anyone who knows me, who has seen my Facebook page, has seen a lot of my recent news feeds regarding access to my home, the small island of St Helena. (St Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha)

    The islands are ones of isolation and amazing natural beauty. The people are friendly and caring. The islands are served by HM Royal Mail Ship St Helena and more recently the long awaited airport has been built. However, recently our elderly maiden of the sea has needed servicing and the newly built airport is still not cleared for commercial flights, limiting access to and from the island.

    I am pleased to update you that the team shall indeed be attending the Commonwealth Games and are scheduled to travel to Capetown on this long journey on the 26th June.

    The team however still require additional costs to cover the additional expenses of accommodation and food as the journey via this route means they will be away for a longer period of time

    Therefore, I am asking, if you are able to donate to the amount already raised to help them on this incredible journey, please donate to my just giving page.

    Thank you
