Uganda Bound

The team going to Uganda this Saturday (October 26th) will be taking thousands of pounds with them to buy books to stock the a school library's shelves.

Students at the Discovery Centre in Uganda will be given a huge boost with their studies thanks to the efforts of the CBA community, who have managed to raise just under £2,000.

Librarian Amy McKay and Sixth Form students Chrissie Moore and Sophie Allen are heading out there to take part in a Sixth Form conference.

After hearing about the lack of resources at the centre the trio decided they wanted to help and so have organised a series of fundraising events to get together the cash.

Amy said: "As always everybody has been so generous and we are really grateful.

"These books will make a huge difference to the Ugandan students and really help enhance their learning and improve their future."

Fundraising has included a reading camp, badge selling, a race night and a stall at local festival WeldonFest.

Students have also come up with fundraising events in their tutor groups.

The international link was first set up in 2009 after CBA linked up with Northamptonshire based Christian charity Adventure Projects Trust which helps runs the Discovery Centre.

The centre is a residential resource which was set up in 1994 in response to the AIDS situation in the country. This will be the third made by a CBA cohort.

Details of their visit will be shown in assembly and pictures will be available on our website.
