“I wanted to involve my friends and family in the adventure I was about to go on and Patchwork was the perfect way to do it. I asked friends to lend me travelling essentials and make me playlists, and my family gave me money towards my savings.”

“It was a fun way to show all my family and friends the kind of things I wanted to do with my time away, and got them really involved. It’s a straight-forward and easy to use way to fund your travels.”

“Patchwork meant my family could choose to give me an activity during my travels, maybe ‘a day in Tokyo’ or a much needed ‘meal in a restaurant’ or even a ‘cocktail on the beach’ – it allowed them to give a real gift whilst also helping me fund my trip!”
