    Hi, I'm thinking of doing the World Challenge in summer 2017, but was told that it's around £3000, and that we should be raising this money ourselves.
    Apart from cake sales, does anyone have any other ideas on how to raise good levels of money?

    Assuming you'll be doing some form of charity work whilst you're away, perhaps write to various trusts and foundations? I did, and must have got about £800 from it. It takes time and energy but worth the effort!

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone, but my parents made me really think about it, and I realised that I don't have enough time next year
