Weʼre raising £1,000 to travel to Borneo and be part of a 4 week expedition to help make a difference to local communities, environmental and wildlife conservation.

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.
Next summer, I’ll be embarking on a four-week Camps International expedition to Borneo, where I’ll be working shoulder-to-shoulder with local communities to help improve living standards by building community toilet blocks in areas where many homes are still without their own facilities. I’ll also be supporting ongoing wildlife conservation.
I’ll be living in the communities I’ll be working with, fully immersing myself in local life and helping and supporting local families and children. I’m hugely excited about the opportunity to interact with different communities, cultures and languages, to better understand other ways of life – and to make a positive difference to other people’s lives.
To raise funds, I’m taking to the water for a sponsored swim, where I’ll be racking up a total of 7.5 miles (603 lengths!) to mirror the 7,500 mile flying distance to Borneo. This will take me 10-weeks in total, and I’m already at the halfway mark, being invigilated by Minnows Swimming Club to make sure I keep things official. And on May 13 I’ll be taking part in my first ever triathlon. Any sponsorship would be fantastic and very much appreciated.
Thank you, Victoria x

About the fundraiser
Misterton, Doncaster, UK
I’m 16, currently studying for my GCSEs but also busy fundraising necessary monies for this expedition. It will cost £4,350 - I’m doing everything I can to raise the funds myself. I’ve saved over £600 from my weekend waitressing job and raised £200 from fundraising events so far.
