Cheque Handed Over For Uganda Appeal

CBA students have given a helping hand to pupils in a developing country through their fundraising efforts.

Today (Monday, January 31st) a cheque for £250 and two flip cameras were donated to the UK Co-ordinator of the Discovery Centre in Uganda, which CBA has forged links with.

Richard Johnson from the centre paid a visit to the Academy following Year 7's charity cross-country run last year.

The students ran laps of the field and collected more than £1,500 in sponsorship - smashing their target of £1,000.

The money donated will go towards paying for internet costs for a year for the children and young people who use the Discovery Centre, helping to establish a link between students there and those at CBA.
