Trio Kick-Start Fundraising For Uganda Trip

The latest Sixth Formers to be selected for a life-changing trip to Uganda are busy making plans for their fundraising campaign.

Connor Wilson, Chrissie Moore and Lauren Dunn will visit the Discovery Centre in Uganda during the October half term but they need to raise £4,000 first.

The trio, who will take part in a youth convention with other English and Ugandan students during their trip, are already planning a series of events.

They are hoping to hold a mufti day, a quiz, a Valentine's Day message service and have already started collecting donations through a football card scheme.

Connor said: "I'm looking forward to the trip because it's a chance to experience another country and see how other people live.

"We heard so much about it from the last Sixth Formers who went that it was just something I wanted to get involved with."

Each year, CBA builds on its links with the Discovery Centre, which was set up as an education and residential facility for young people at the height of the country's AIDS crisis.
