Thanks for taking the time to support my fundraising for this very worthwhile charity and please take a few minutes to find out more about what I am doing and more importantly, why.
Raleigh International is a charity working with young people in the UK, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds and at-risk groups, along with volunteers from host countries, and volunteer managers (that's me!). The funds this page raises don't go to just support me, but the entire effort to empower young people to lead sustainable change in some of the worlds poorest communities, often in remote areas and challenging environments. It is a truly worthwhile cause.
In January 2015 I will be taking 13 weeks away from my business and clients here in the City to take on the role of Communications Officer for the Raleigh Expedition to Tanzania. As well as taking time away from work I'll be funding my own travel and medical expenses so each and every donation or pledge of support, no matter what size, will play a real part in helping me to make a positive impact on the young Venturers and the communities in which we will be operating.

Lastly, a personal thank you from me. I know you are probably inundated with people undertaking equally important charity events, but I hope you'll see that the lasting legacy that a Raleigh expedition puts in place for everyone involved makes this a worthwhile investment.
