What did you use to fundraise?
Raised cost of flights
Sri Lanka, August 2017
How did you find your fundraising experience?
I applied to my university's funding scheme. This required an application form which was followed by an interview lasting approximately 10 minutes. From this I raised enough to cover my flights entirely so it was really worthwhile.
What are your top tips?
• If you don't ask you don't get!
• Email a careers adviser or head of year and see what help there is.
• Emailing SLV.Global really helped with a lot of the questions and some of the information I was able to copy word for word.
• Some funding applications have deadlines so it's best to start early so you don't miss out.
