HI, THANKS FOR LOOKING AT MY PAGE.

I HAVE CREATED THIS PAGE TO HELP TRY AND RAISE MONEY TO FUND MYSELF ON A VOLUNTEER TRIP TO VIETNAM. I HAVE BEEN TOLD TO TELL YOU THAT THESE DONATIONS ARE NOT DIRECTLY GOING TO THE CHARITY -   CONCORDIA, THEY ARE GOING TO ME TO HELP FUND THE TRIP.  THROUGH THE CHARITY CONCORDIA I NEED TO RAISE £2,150 IN ORDER TO TAKE PART IN THIS WORTHY CAUSE.  I WILL BE GOING TO VIETNAM FOR 2 WEEKS TO VOLUNTEER IN AN ORPHANAGE SCHOOL FOR DISABLED CHILDREN- MANY OF WHOM HAVE BEEN AFFECTED BY AGENT ORANGE.  WHILST THERE I WILL BE CARRYING OUT MAINTENANCE IN AND AROUND THE SCHOOL, HOPEFULLY SPENDING TIME WITH THE CHILDREN AND HELPING TO TEACH SOME LESSONS.

WHILST THERE, MY MAIN AIM IS TO HELP CHILDREN TO ENJOY LIFE, OR AT THE VERY LEAST IMPROVE THEIR LIVING CONDITIONS.  WHEN I GET BACK FROM THIS EXTRAORDINARY TRIP, IT WILL UNDOUBTABLY AFFECT MY OWN OUTLOOK ON LIFE AND MAKE ME APPRECIATE MY OWN ACHIEVEMENTS BOTH NOW AND IN THE FUTURE.  I WILL ALSO BE ABLE TO PASS ON WHAT I HAVE LEARNT AND EXPERIENCED IN ORDER TO ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO VOLUNTEER THROUGH THIS PROGRAM NEXT YEAR!

TO EARN YOUR DONATIONS I AM PLANNING ON DOING A SPONSORED 7KM ARMY ASSAULT COURSE/MUD RUN ON 1ST MARCH 2014 (THE NUTS CHALLENGE). I HAVE DECIDED TO DO THIS BECAUSE I FEEL IT WILL BE A TRUE TEST OF WHAT I CAN DO AND WILL PUSH ME TO MY LIMITS. THIS WILL MAKE ME FEEL LIKE I HAVE EARNED YOUR DONATIONS INSTEAD OF JUST ASKING FOR MONEY TO PUT TOWARDS THE TRIP.

**PLEASE NOTE;  THIS PAGE WILL NOT BE PUT UP UNTIL I COMPLETE THE RACE, THEREFORE IF I AM UNABLE TO FINISH IT I WONT BE RECIEVEING YOUR DONATIONS**

I WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR ANY FUNDS TOWARDS THIS TRIP, AS IT WILL ALLOW ME TO REACH THE TOTAL FEE NEEDED TO ALLOW ME TO GO ON THIS INCREDIBLE TRIP, SO 'THANK YOU'
