The Message Trust - Equipping Year

I am trying to raise enough funds to attend an equipping year at The Message Trust - Manchester

We did it!

On 2nd Sep 2014 we successfully raised £1,015 of £1,000 target with 13 supporters in 28 days

New stretch target



Hi, my name is Rhys Divine and I have just secured the promise of a place to go on The Message Academy this September to learn about working with young people, both here in the UK and abroad. This will equip me with skills I need to further my career in youth work. To achieve my goal it will cost £6,000 to cover fees and expenses, which will include an overseas mission trip to South Africa.

To achieve this I am looking to crowdfund for £1,000 which is only one sixth of the funding required. The rest I hope to raise from my own efforts.

When I join the Message Programme I will be joining in on all of their activities including schools work, after school clubs and training in music technology, (to find out more about the work of The Message go to

This year is going to challenge me greatly and I am really looking forward to it. I am going to be challenged to overcome some of my fears such as talking to new people without any prior introduction. This is something that scares me but it is also a vital part of the training I will receive.

After I have finished the course I will receive a certificate to say that I have completed it. I will also have gained new skills and perfected the ones I already have.

I really want to go on this programme but not just because it will help me a great deal, but also because I know that, while on the course, I will be able to help a lot of other people too. So please support my life project and I promise to keep all my supporters up-to-date with everything that goes on.

I would be mightily grateful if you were to donate cash towards my cause.
