Deposits/Finance & Fundraising - Important information to note
We want to ensure that the cost of the trip does not become a burden for anyone wishing to attend; therefore we are going to embark on a fundraising campaign in order to reduce the cost. All pilgrims registering for the WYD event will be required to commit to this fundraising campaign.
We are anticipating that each pilgrim will be able to fundraise in the region of £355.00.
