My Fundraising Beginning

It has always been said that for you to appreciate something fully you have to work for it, and I think that in this year I will really come to grips with this. Fundraising is going to be a real challenge but I know that it will be worth the once in a life time opportunity that will result from it.

Back in Coll, on my selection course, before I knew I was selected, the thoughts of fundraising were not so real. This was when I was told that the first £1000 would be the hardest to raise. You were finding out where to start, writing the letters in the correct way to get your message across well and concisely and finding the confidence to actually ask other people for a donation. And whilst I am still working on these I have many ideas and plans that need to be put into place. Though at the top of my fundraising to do list is to write to trust as soon as possible and to get leaflets finished.

Other than this I have just been trying to research the culture and even try and learn a little of the language so I don’t seem as unprepared when I arrive. 🙂

I hope you have enjoyed my first blog post, more will be coming!

Hello! My name is Hannah Chambers, and in 2016 I was selected by the charity Project Trust to take part in a 12 month overseas placement in India this is an incredible opportunity to be able to go for so long and therefore be able to fully immerse myself in the culture.
