Costs

The minimum fundraising target for Moving Mountains is £1,395.00 per person.


Our Medical Camps in Nepal are Moving Mountains trips. The total cost for the trip is paid by fundraising so you can register your interest on the Moving Mountains website page and then receive an email confirming your place.

Set up your fundraising page by clicking 'Start Fundraising' on this Justgiving page.

If you collect donations from UK taxpayers then we can collect gift aid which is 25% on top of any donation. That means you can reduce the amount you need to raise.

 

For example if you raised £1,000 from UK taxpayers on your fundraising page then the charity would receive a further £250.00 of gift aid, thus helping you reach your target. 

 

Please see the fundraising pages for information and raising your target.
