Win a luxury holiday abroad fundraising for KickStart Ghana

KickStart Ghana are taking part in “The Great BIG Small Charity Draw” this year. Basically this means that if KickStart Ghana supporters buy a raffle ticket for a £1 they are in the running to win a host of amazing prizes including a luxury holiday, ipad minis, a UK weekend trip, a London Eye experience and others. The best part is for every £1 ticket a supporter buys, KickStart Ghana get 92 pence. We could also win an extra £500 if KickStart Ghana sells the most tickets and £250 if our supporter is a winning ticket holder.

We would love to sell as many tickets as possible so please do buy and spread the word.

The draw closes on December 16th and the prize winners will be announced in early 2014.

Good luck from everyone at KickStart Ghana!

Chris Minch – 2013 Assistant Volunteer Coordinator

Chris was KickStart Ghana’s Assistant Volunteer Coordinator for the summer of 2013. He spent almost three months in Ghana and his work ranged from managing volunteers, conducting interviews, helping organise the summer school, coaching at Dynamo FC and assisting the financial administration. We couldn’t have asked for someone better and we were delighted with his work and attitude. We caught up with Chris to find out his thoughts on the summer.

Q. Why did you choose to volunteer with KickStart Ghana?

I chose to volunteer with KSG for a couple of reasons. Initially, it was a bit opportunistic because I was at a loose end after I finished my degree and was looking for something to do for the summer. However, as soon as I saw that there was an opportunity to work with KSG I jumped on it. I knew if I went with KSG the summer would be extremely worthwhile, both in terms of my own personal experience and in playing a role in carrying some extremely helpful work in a community that it benefits.
