So wil the 16 who are going to personally deliver the money be paying for the trip themselves or will the cost be paid for out of the "charity fund raising event?"

If it's the latter then I would suggest you electronically transfer the money and pay for your own holiday.

the 16 students who are going, are paying and funding their own tickets.
All the money raised goes to the children and all the students have been doing a lot of events in their own time.
I know because I'm a parent paying for the trip.
