I'm hoping to get some ideas to help me raise money for this charity event I am taking part in. I work for BT and each year they team up with a Charity called Challenge Worldwide: Training for Life and ask BT employees to volunteer to take part in a charity event. This year the focus of the charity is to raise money for children and communities in Africa.
The idea is to raise around £3500 which will go towards repairing classrooms, feeding programs for children, materials for new classrooms, accommodation and medical facilities, a rainwater conservation system and a few others things that will really help change the children and their families lives.
The event also involves the group of about 60 people who are taking part going over to the slums of Africa and a small community in Tanzania and actually making repairs to the classrooms, helping to feed and educate the children, help build some of the new classrooms and rainwater system.
I have raised a bit of money so far but I am looking for ideas that will really help me get of the ground. They have set a few targets and the first is to raise £500 by the end of May. All the money raised will go to the charity and the costs of all the flights, accommodation and guides will be covered by the people taking part.
Would be extremely grateful for any help.
