Generous community group offer to help part fund trip

A generous community group has offered to help contribute towards students planning to visit Tanzania.

Kind-hearted students from Pool Academy are planning to travel to Tanzania next year to help others less fortunate than themselves.

They are taking part in a number of fundraising initiatives to raise the thousands of pounds needed to get them there.

Lions International Camborne and Redruth Club member Peter Cale heard about the trip and said the club was in a position to help contribute towards costs.

He said: “We have made an offer to help and provide some of the funding towards their trip and we would like to meet them and discuss this.”

He said it would be lovely to receive a letter from the students to hear about plans for the trip. He suggested some of the students may want to speak to the Lions at one of their meetings.

One student from Pool Academy is holding a Fashion Show and Pop-up Show tomorrow (FRIDAY) at Heathcoat Social club, in Pool, from 7pm. Tickets for the event cost £5 and there will also be a charity raffle.

The group of students hope to travel to East Africa in July next year to spend four weeks helping others. They will be going with Camps International to help with local projects such as building classrooms, community centres or protecting wildlife.
