African Adventure 9 April 2015
Two students, Hannah Walke and Matthew Hamer, will be travelling to Malawi in August 2015 with a team of volunteers organised by Project Trust. This is an amazing opportunity for them both to live and work overseas. They will be working with children and young adults teaching hygiene routines, English, PSHE and managing other activities such as arts and games.
We are sure this will be an enjoyable and highly rewarding experience for them, but will also be a huge challenge. Their challenge has already begun with them needing to raise £5,900 each for the trip. Allendale Co-operative Society is pleased to have been able to provide substantial sponsorship to both students. Hannah and Matthew also did a ‘Bag Pack’ on Saturday 14th March and raised an amazing £227 thanks to the generosity of customers and staff.
We wish them every success with the fundraising and the adventure ahead of them. Look out for the posters advertising their next big fund raising event - a Ceilidh on the 18th April at Allendale Village Hall.
