Started on 12th January 2021 Exeter, England, United Kingdom

At Whipton Barton Federation in Exeter we are part-way through a re-fit of our Junior School and would be thrilled to see our old furniture be put to good use by schools in The Gambia rather than finding its way onto a rubbish dump. We are working closely with the charity PAGEANT who will support us in ensuring the furniture goes to schools which need it most, including a new library in a school in the Yundum Barracks area which was under construction earlier this year.

We know that this classroom furniture, which includes tables, chairs, teachers' desks, bookcases, tray units, storage cupboards and much more, will make such a huge difference to the staff and children at these schools.

We will also fill all the nooks and crannies of our shipping container with books and other school supplies.

Hopefully, when the second phase of our building work is complete, we will send a second container of the remaining furniture out to Banjul at the end of the summer term. This fundraising target will allow us to complete both shipments.

The children at our school will learn so much from taking part in such an important venture.

Your contribution, however small, is greatly appreciated and will put us one step closer to our goal - Thank you!
