Callum Shaikh Reaches a Milestone in His Sponsorship

Posted by / September 22, 2017

You may remember the PG Mutual team sponsored Callum Shaikh on his World Challenge trip to Nepal earlier this year.  

We’ve been able to sit down and catch up with Callum to see how he’s been getting on since beginning his sponsorship journey in March 2017.

During our catch up, it became clear that Callum has barely missed an opportunity to inch closer to his sponsorship goal! Summer has proved to be a busy yet successful season for him in regards to reaching his sponsorship goals.

“Most recently, we arranged to do a car boot sale at the MK Bowl which is a large car boot that is only about 20m from where I live. We arrived at a bright and early 6:00am. Throughout the day there was a steady flow of customers and by the end we had made approximately £118 in profit. I hope to organise another very soon as I still have other items I’m looking to pass on.”

Callum does have quite a bit to be proud of accomplishing during this process. He’s worked hard and has developed opportunities for himself when it comes to sponsorship. Because of this tenacity he has exceeded his fundraising expectations to date, far beyond what he had intended.

Callum has raised £2,871 of his £4,000 sponsorship goal!

Callum will be completing the final stretch of his fund raising in the coming months he hopes. He now plans to take the next steps in his trip preparation.

“The next steps now are to organise my appointments with my doctor to discuss the medication or vaccinations I’ll need before, during and after the trip to Nepal.”

We wish Callum the best of luck in the final months of his fund raising and we look forward to hearing more about his preparation!
