Alex’s turn this week, and although he doesn’t have many photos of him doing his fundraising, he is working hard and doing those activites which everyone thinks of as “normal” – it just goes to show that it works!  Well done Alex – what else have you got planned?…..

Hey everyone!!

Firstly, when I found out that I would have a chance to go to Africa, I was absolutely ecstatic: I almost screamed in my assembly. My sister went on an expedition the year before with Camps and she said it was possibly the best time of her life, and needless to say, I was rather jealous.  I have been so excited ever since I first found out and I will continue to be excited until I actually get there.

I have done quite a few things to fundraise: bun sales, car washes – the standard really. However, in the future, I have some interesting ideas that I want to do.

Alex Car Washing

Firstly, another person from our group said there is an adventure course that we could do which seemed a lot of fun and a challenge. Me and a friend are maybe thinking of doing tough mudder event, however I still am not sure if I can do it physically.

I am also thinking of doing a quiz night at a local pub which should hopefully raise a lot of money as I have multiple ideas for different rounds.

I don’t know exactly how much I have raised as I have put all my money in a can which cannot be opened, so I will only be able to find out when I do a grand opening. If I had to guess how much I have made, I would estimate around £1500+.

Unfortunately I have not many pictures of me doing my fundraising, but I know I will take hundreds of photos whilst I am in Malawi

Thanks :)
