Sorry this is very late!! But thank you so much to everyone who has donated! We and everyone in Wobulenzi Town Academy are so grateful!
The climb was hard and much perserverance was needed but we eventually got there! All in all 11 out of 16 in our group made it to the very top, but everyone made it over 5,400m.
Some pictures are now up and just email or notify us in some way if you would like to see and/or know more about it.
This page will be open only for another week or so for any last minute donations. The information on what the donations are going to will still be left below.
Thanks so very much!
Grace, Jess and Toby
We are trying to buy science and sports equipment for the new school they are building for the Wobulenzi Town Academy in Uganda. They need everything from pipettes and chemicals to netball posts and skipping ropes.
Up until now, the students have had to walk far in order to be able to play netball and basketball. They have also been unable to do any scientific practicals by themselves due to the lack of a lab and chemicals. The only experiments available are stored in a cardboard box, brought out once a term just before exams which the teachers do. We want to stop this. For more information about the school etc please take a look at their website: www.servedirect.org
We can buy everything locally, and materials will cost from £2 - £50 each.
Please help us achieve this by donating some money if you can. Thanks.
