Lilli looks like she is having a great time fundraising for her expedition to Kenya in 2019 – she is doing so many different things – have  a read and hopefully it will inspire you!

When I first heard about the expedition to Kenya I thought it would be a great experience for me to help and learn about a different culture and way of life. I was excited and looking forward to making the most of the opportunity and helping the local community and children.

I started my fundraising in February. To raise my first amount I put together a valentines basket which raised £72.

b112a429-3722-49aa-872a-d06715cec62dI contacted local businesses to gain sponsorships and started a donations tin. Then I began planning my first fundraisers. Through sponsorship and donations I raised a total amount of £1592.50. I hosted a bake sale at my house in March along with an Easter egg raffle and games which raised £340. Then we had a barn dance with food, games and a raffle in April which had a great turn out and raised £610.551956e0ed-6d94-4cbd-8855-7f538dd5146e

I have also been making handmade cushions and key rings, selling them at £5 each for the cushions and £1.50 for the key rings, which all together raised £300. I hosted a sponsored waxing event, where I encouraged my dad, brother and godfather into getting waxed, they gained £191. I did a joint car treasure hunt with a BBQ on the beach for everyone at the finishing point, this fundraiser raised £62 for me. I attended car boot sales and sold clothes to cash4clothes and received a total of £400.74

Next I am planning to do another barn dance to raise the final amount needed for my injections, visa and kit. As I’ve already raised £3577.79 of my £3750 total target.b6283a39-2436-44d4-9bd5-c2e5c77724d2
