The Project

I will be participating in a charity project involving a three-week expedition to Borneo, working with the charity Raleigh International and alongside fellow students and staff from Newcastle Univeristy Civil Engineering Department. 

The project includes the design and build of a vital gravity feed water system to provide a safe supply of water for a rural village community. 

We will be working closely with the community to improve sanitation awareness and good practise, as well as educating on the maintenance of the system we install to ensure longevity of the work completed. 


I am extremely passionate about this project as it provides a challenging hands-on experience and the chance to make a real difference to people’s lives.

In-order to participate I must first meet my fundraising target! 

£2300 is needed for project supplies, staff and in-country food, as well as supporting the work of Raleigh International.

Any size of donation is appreciated, it is a great opportunity that really will provide a positive impact in this world and I hope you can provide support! 

My main fundraising event will be a run from the Stadium of Light in Sunderland to St James Park in Newcastle! A distance of around 12 miles, this is an event I am organising myself and will be running it with my two of my fellow students. 

Please Note: Paying by card takes 6.0% of the donation, so if possible donate via paypal or in person - Thanks!
