My name is Ferret and I am a yoga teacher and keen fundraiser.
After raising money for Sheffield’s homeless, children with cancer, and refugees… my next charity I’ll be supporting is the snow drop project.
Combining fundraising with a once in a lifetime trip to climb Kilimanjaro; I am both excited about the trip and petrified at the same time…. 8 days climbing uphill… oooffff…. I’m also recovering from a bunch of health issues so I have already started training for the ascent.
I need to raise £4000 for the charity (I’ll be paying for my flights and expenses separately myself; this money goes not to me but straight to the charity and Just Giving is the easiest way for them to get gift aid… so… here we go – let’s do this! 4grand in a year…. can we make it?
I’ll be running a series of dance workshops and yoga classes & workshops and ALL the proceeds will go to this fund.
The first set of classes will be on zoom; Tuesday and Thursday lunchtimes; short Shoulder Love classes. Check them out
A word from the charity themselves;
“Thank you for supporting this incredible fundraiser and helping to raise essential funds for survivors of trafficking. Every donation will go towards supporting our clients in moving on from their past and building a great future. Thank you so much for your generosity. The Snowdrop Project exists as the government does not fund long term support. In law the UK has signed up to a minimum of 45 day support starting from when someone has been identified as a survivor of trafficking. Although support is often for a longer period in reality, many of those we work with have complex needs and require support and advocacy for many years to help them lead an independent life and to reduce the risk of re-exploitation. Thank you for being a crucial part in this journey.”
