Joshua's story:

Help me spend ten months in the USA making my dreams come true by attending High School and playing basketball!

My name is Joshua Thomson and I am 17 years old. I am currently fundraising to allow me to spend an academic year in the USA. I need to fundraise £6000 to enable me to reach my goal. So far I have saved £2500 through working and fundraising.  I need to reach £6000 by the end of May 2014.

I completed my 5th year at Knightswood Secondary School in June 2013 and gained four A grades and one C in my exams.

I play competitive Basketball in a local and national league and my dream is to play basketball in the USA. I am planning to spend ten months in the USA supported by FLAG. I then hope to syudy at Strathclyde University.

I am currently studying at City of Glasgow College and am also employed at Papa John’s Pizza in Broomhill. However despite saving hard I need to fundraise to enable me to reach the payment target to allow me to go to the USA in August 2014.

I am looking for the support of friends and family as I only earn £3.78 an hour at my pizza job, and despite fundraising I am struggling to reach my target.  If you are able to sponsor me you would be helping to make my dream come true.  I have asked local businesses if they sponor me £50 or more I will write to them prior to leaving for the USA in August 2014 and on my return to update them about what they have helped me to achieve and I would also do the same for individual sponsorship.

Also, if anyone has any ideas to help me raise money I would love to hear them, and if anyone wanted to carry out a sponsor event for me I would love to be part of this also.

Thanks you for reading about my planned adventures and I hope I have insipred you to invest in me.  Every little helps and any donations would be much appreciated. Thank You!!!
