Hello, Rob here.
In July, 4 members of staff, 7 students and myself from Mellow Lane School are travelling to Malawi for 9 days to build a house for a family living in extreme poverty.
The trip will be life changing for us all, introducing us to a new culture, a new way of living and above all else, show us just how lucky we are. We have such a dedicated team, putting everything we can into fundraising. So far we have organised a talent show, set up individual fundraisers, and are planning to contact other local schools, put on a Bollywood night at our school and organise a quiz, thanks to the team’s contacts… all to go towards the group funding.
I, myself, will be doing a 15-20 mile walk in mid-April hopefully with a group of friends, this money will go towards the money I have to raise by myself.
This is the school’s third trip with HfH, and fundraising is a LOT harder now, what with government cuts and that, and it is in jeopardy of not going ahead.
The money raised will go towards
– Accommodation and travel for all of us going
– Resources for the house
– Employing a local builder
I’ll be grateful for ANY help/contributions, if you cannot donate yourself please promote what we are doing to family and friends, or perhaps business contacts, every little helps.
