Help us build The ‘Becs’ Zammit Lupi Secondary School

Update posted by Darrin Zammit Lupi On Oct 09, 2021

I continue to be amazed at how the fundraiser is going, and am eternally grateful to everyone who's supported it in one way or the other. It's only taken some four days to reach the latest target I had set, so once again, I'm going to raise it further. At the end of the day, we need to collect at least €100,000 to cover the total cost of building the school, though I don't of course expect to raise that sum here. After all, there's the rest of the team also fundraising in various ways.

I know that somewhere, Becs is really smiling about this. I can feel it with every atom of my being.

Thank you for your help and wanting to be a part of this incredible venture.

I'm utterly stunned by the response these past couple of days. Despite Facebook and Instagram being down for so long yesterday, on my birthday, donations continued to flow in, and we've now topped the 12,000€ mark, far in excess of my wildest expectations. Yet again, I'm going to increase my personal target so that this project gets ever closer to reality. Yesterday the trekking and fundraising team for the Camino de Santiago segment got together for the first time, for a meeting discussing things such as what it's all about, costs involved, logistics, training, dates etc. In a nutshell, the cost of doing the trek would cost around 600€ (which is separate from what you'd need to fundraise - you'd have to cover that cost yourself) and so far, it's planned for the first or second week of May 2022. If you're interested in getting more closely involved with that and joining us on the trek, join the Facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/597592101264147

Thank you.

For the second time in a few days, we've managed to exceed my personal fundraising target, something I'd already increased substantially. I'm truly humbled and stunned by the overwhelming response. I'm going to further raise that personal target, given that this particular campaign runs till January. Let's see if we can get to €8000. We don't yet have a final estimate of the total costs for the school project are, but it's expected to be somewhere around the €100,000 mark or thereabouts. So this particular personal campaign is just a fraction of that, but the more we can raise here, the closer we get to the global target and make this dream a reality. Tomorrow will be an important day in a couple of ways - firstly, it's my birthday, which was what prompted me to start this campaign now, and secondly because it will be the first time all the people interested in doing the Camino de Santiago or Mount Toubkal treks as challenges to back the school project will be getting together for a first meeting.

It's nine months to the day since we lost Becs. Through this school, she will live forever.

Once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of you who have donated, helped spread the word or shown interest.

The initial response has been fantastic. Heartfelt thanks to everyone who's backed this with donations and/or by spreading the word. Within a few days, we've reached my initial personal fundraising target. That of course remains a fraction of what the whole project is expected to cost (I'm still waiting for word on what that figure is likely to be). So I've increased my target, and am confident that we'll reach it and then I'll increase it further. Meanwhile, preparations have begun to build the team of amazing people who will get actively involved in raising money for the cause by taking part in the challenges next year.

Thank you.
