Raising a Mountain of Cash

By Rosanna Terberg in Guest Bloggers - 17th April 2009

To go on the Everest Base Camp expedition I have to raise £2200 for the charity by May 15th. So far, through sponsorship from close friends and family, and regular busking (being a musician!), I have raised just over half the amount I need. But with another £1000 still to go, and under a month left to get it, I'm getting quite nervous about meeting my target!! I'm going to do a number of fundraising activities to help me reach the amount I need!

The charity - Childreach International - helps children in countries such as Tanzania, Uganda, India and Nepal. All of their schemes are run to achieve sustainable development and involve projects including community led education centres, sanitation, health camps for cut-off communities and clean water provision. On my trip I will be visiting some of these projects in Nepal and meeting some of the children and communities we will be helping. We'll even be delivering medical supplies to the community run hospitals in the Khumbu region of the Himalayas.I've got a few things lined up to help on the money front: tomorrow, I'm going bag packing at Marks and Spencer's which should be an interesting experience. I'm doing it with several others from the Everest group which is great as I haven't met anyone from the group yet! Hopefully I'll also go on a few pub collections -I've heard people can be very generous in pubs.
