To apply for a contribution from the fund our summer staff were asked to explain what charity, programme, event or business venture they were involved in and how money from the fund would contribute to their projects and help make a difference. Our successful applicants and what they hoped to achieve are:
Justin Lewis- Wokingham Camp
Justin will be teaching English and PE in schools in Thailand, this will give him the opportunity to work with local Thai children and set up a successful programme with some extra curricular activities for the children to take part in outside of the classroom.
Emily Smith- Ripley camp
Emily’s nephew Harrison was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Emily and her family have set up Harrisons fund to raise money in hope to find a cure.
Dave Thorogood- Hertford Camp
Dave would like to use the money to help complete the production of his band ‘The Kubricks’ album. He also planned to manufacture it on CD which he hopes will be able to help promote the band and get it into the shops!
Claire Loveridge- Wokingham
Claire went to Thailand to work at an orphanage ‘Greenways Singburi Camp’ for two weeks where she ran activities to promote peer interaction and help the children learn the English language. She then went onto an elephant sanctuary where she helped feed and exercise the elephants.
