The best thing about my job is that I get to chat to you lot about how you‰’re getting on- some of you are used to me ringing you up for a good old chinwag and others I haven‰’t spoken to much (give us a call, I‰’d love to chat!) My favourite thing is when you get in contact with me out of the blue with something really positive. This week‰’s fundraising Friday Star wasn‰’t even an entry initially, I told her she should definitely put herself forward- fundraising is not all about organising large scale events and it‰’s obvious she‰’s put in a lot of time and hard work, something that definitely deserves recognition. So, without further ado, this weeks Fundraising Friday Star is‰ Elleesse!


When I first found out about the trip to Borneo I felt amazed by all the effort that can be put into something that will help others!


So far to help me with fundraising I have done car washes, gardening, window cleaning and car boot sales and have raised over £300 in three weeks!


With my first car boot I managed to raise £160 towards my Borneo 2017 expedition, with plenty of stock over ready for my next one. I began by posting leaflets through my local community, asking for donations for car boot sales, and was overwhelmed by the response as you can see from my pictures.

Every car boot I do I get my mum and dad to tag along and we go to different areas depending on how many items we have. Some days we have to miss the car boots as the weather isn’t great but it just means I get to do something else instead like a bit of gardening or car washing- a little bit of rain won’t hurt!

In the future to help me fundraise I will be doing more car boot sales and cake sales as I have found them to be really successful.

Awesome! As ever, PLEASE send us over your fundraising story, it makes us smile when we get to read your stories! What we look for when picking a Fundraising Friday Star is what you felt when you first heard about the expedition, a few paragraphs about what you have been up to so far for your fundraising, any future fundraising plans and some pictures of your fundraising! LOTS of pictures! (pleeeeeease) But the pictures do need to be of a high quality that can be uploaded online‰, no fuzzy mugshots! 😉
