Fundraising Hall of Fame: Christine

Christine, from the UK, has become a serial fund-raiser for Globalteer’s Peru Community Project Picaflor House, in the village of Oropesa near Cusco after volunteering at the project for four weeks in 2012. She explained why she wanted to continue fund-raising after she had left Peru:
 
“I liked what was being done for the children of Oropesa and the plans that Globalteer had for the project. I was not in a position to be a volunteer again but I could support the project with money raised from various events.”

And so Christine duly set about fundraising. First she baked cakes and had a cake stall at a Greenwich University conference in London and raised £85. Then when she retired from her job she sold her text books and donated another £55. And as if that wasn’t enough, she went on to donate a further £500 - the proceeds from the sale of furniture when she sold her house in England. With additional UK tax relief Christine raised over £800 ($1200) for Picaflor House – which will go a very long way in Peru!

*STOP PRESS* Christine has now set up a monthly direct debit payment to Picafor House - a huge thank you to Christine!
