My Travel Story

by: Steph Rolfe Start Date: Jun 8, 2017 - End Date: Apr 29, 2018
Hello everyone!
 Next July, I'm heading to the Dominican Republic for 2 weeks to gain valuable work experience for when I eventually train as a nurse. However, I need some help raising my funds in order to partake in this unique opportunity. Spending 14 days shaddowing various medical professionals in my chosen areas of expertise (mental health and paediatrics) will be a dream come true for me; furthermore, it will really set me apart when it comes to applying for university. 
 Having chosen to fly to the other side of the world for this placement is a massive personal challenge: it will help build my confidence, resilience and independence. So not only will this take me far in the world of career, but also my own development and growth. 
Please support me in this amazing plan - I cannot do it without your help! 
Much love, Steph xox

    Not long now... It's 10 months tomorrow until I fly to the Caribbean! I just want to say a HUGE thanks to everyone who has donated so far - online and off. I raised £90 in sponsors for my 5k fun run, which is a huge achievement. My next big fundraiser for my trip with Gap Medics is the Boxing Day Dip at a local beach: wish me luck... (And please donate!)

    11 months until set-off!
    The months are gradually diminishing until my trip to La Romana! In preparation for this, I have been organising yet more fundraising activities such as a car boot sale. It's also not long until my adventure with Gung-Ho, the inflatable 5k obstacle course! So far, I have raised £37 of sponsors for this, so a massive thank you to those people. Furthermore, I'd like to thank everyone who has already donated on this site - your support means a lot. See you all soon!
