Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I'm joining Team OUSET's Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge on 31/08/2024. I'll be raising funds for OUSET, the grant giving trust supporting OU students experiencing financial hardship, helping them to continue their studies in the face of adversity.

Over the last 3 years I've donated a whopping 100 hours (and counting!) towards running the OU Students Association Graduation Stalls, raising money for OUSET selling OU merch but I'm still not tired enough! So the challenge itself is to complete a 24 mile hike across my homeland and the place that inspired my interest in Geology from a young age (my current OU degree). I'll be tackling the Yorkshire Dales 3 major peaks in just 12 hours!

If you can, please donate and help me towards my goal of £303.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them or send unwanted e-mails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to OUSET. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for OUSET.

About the charity

The Open University Students Educational Trust (OUSET) is a charity owned and operated by the OU Students Association, to support OU students who are in severe financial hardship, where the likelihood of successfully completing their study goals is threatened. One of the aims of the OU Students Shop is to support this charitable endeavour. OUSET's Board of Trustees is chaired by the immediate past president of the Students Association and is nearly entirely comprised of student trustees. The majority of funds for OUSET are raised by Students Association members. Year on year, students use their ingenuity and their expertise to come up with ever more interesting ways of raising money on behalf of those students in financial need. You can find out more about becoming involved with OUSET fundraising here on the Students Association website or by emailing ouset@open.ac.uk. However the money is raised, OUSET is always grateful for the support it receives from our OU students, staff, and friends, so any kind donations are sincerely appreciated.
