    Story

    in September I will be beginning a gap year with BMS (Baptist Mission Society) Action Teams. I will be part of small group going to Uganda, based in the city of Gulu. I will spend six months here working with an educational co-operative providing activities for children and extra reading support. I will also help with a local agricultural project which supports farmers to develop sustainable methods. Lastly, near the end of my placement I will probably spend some time working with youth offenders in Kampala. Following this six-month placement I will then tour the UK to tell people about the work e.g. at local community events and churches.

    In order to go I need to raise £5,500 which will go towards the projects I will be helping at and my general living costs when I am abroad.

    I am planning on a range of fundraising initiatives:

    1. Auction of promises - Over!! Thankyou to everyone that took part all winners have been contacted.

    2. Sponsored Bike Ride - I am going to be cycling from Harwich to Hunstatnton with 80% of this offroad. This will be taking place on the 28th, 29th and 30th of June.

    3. Samuel: The Wright Way to Cook - CookBook is now avaible to Order!!! We are asking for a minimum donation of £5.00 towards my Gap Year. If we need to send a copy in the post please email or message Samuel or Kathryn Wright with your address. If you want more than one copy also message us.
