    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 been accepted as a volunteer with Adventure Ashram. This is to work in Southern India with charities whom they support. I will be helping children improve their English and IT skills and mentoring for the workplace and anything else that is needed!
    I will be travelling to India in January 2018 for 1 months volunteering.
    I am self-funding my trip and all money raised from this page will go directly to Adventure Ashram to use to fund Health and Education projects that are run by local charities in India.
    I believe that education is the key to improving lives and outcomes all over the world and I am very excited that I am being given this opportunity to, hopefully, make a difference in the communities where I will be working.
    More details about Adventure Ashram can be found at:

    Thank you to anyone that is able to help!

      £1469 raised so far! Latest activity was a quiz night organised by Soosie, Gussie and Pauline, raising £115 - such a kind thing to do for me. If Christmas is bringing out your generous side, there is still time to donate at:- I am travelling to India on 2/1 to start my volunteering and I'm getting quite excited (very excited if/when I get my visa :-) ). Still things appearing from the magic needles. These little chaps (nissen. approx 7" high) are available for £5 each, just give me a call.
