Taylor-Jayne has put her handywork skills to good use.  Not only with crafts and cards, but giant wall murals too!  Plus she has been balancing this with her A-levels at the same time.  She has nearly finished raising funds for her entire trip – though by the time you read this she has probably completely finished!

When I first heard about the expedition I initially thought that the trip would be an amazing opportunity and experience and I was really excited to start fundraising. Drawing closer to the time it has started to become excitment and nerves at the same time. I was worried I wouldnt be able to fundraise enough money on top of A levels, but actually I have managed to do fundraising effectively.

To raise my first amount I thought that arts and crafts would be the way forward.  I therefore made a family production line, making home made birthday and Christmas cards, as well as Christmas stockings and gifts bags.  I held card parties and raised around £500 through selling my hand crafted goods.

I have also raised a lot of money through business sponsorships and have printed their logos onto my Camps International t-shirt. Most of my money has come from designing and hand painting wall murals, which I can charge quite large sums of money for, due to the length of time they take me to complete.fullsizeoutput_1

Just to finish off my fundraising I will do a few more car boots as in total I have made about £300 previously from these, this should allow me to pay the last little bit I have left to pay.
