My name is Declan Austin and I have been given the opportunity to change my own life and the lives of others with a trip to Kasulu, in Africa this July.
The team of specially selected students that I am a part of have seen the difference that a mission trip can make to a community and to ourselves, as another mission took place, organised by another group of teachers and students, in 2014. We are hoping to continue the relationship we developed with the community, and help to teach local students in the school that the last team helped to build.
In order for this trip to take place, I need to raise funds, and for that, I need your help. I have been given this opportunity a little later than other members of the team, so I don't have much time to raise the funds, but I have lined up some activities, the first of which is a dawn swim taking place on the summer solstice at the Sandford Parks Lido!
I am also selling ice lollies at school to Sixth Form Students at break and lunch, and a lolly lottery next week!
Thank you for your support!
