Samuel’s Gap Year

In September I will be beginning a gap year with BMS (Baptist Mission Society) Action Teams.  I will be part of small group going to Uganda, based in the city of Gulu. I will spend six months here working with an educational co-operative providing activities for children and extra reading support. I will also help with a local agricultural project which supports farmers to develop sustainable methods. Lastly, near the end of my placement I will probably spend some time working with youth offenders in Kampala. Following this six-month placement, I will then tour the UK to tell people about the work e.g. at local community events and churches.

In order to go I need to raise £5500 which will go towards the projects I will be helping with and my general living and travel costs.

How I will be fund raising:

Auction of Promises – to be held online between 15th-21st May. More details will be posted here in due course.

Sponsored Cycle Ride – at the planning stage.

Samuel: The Wright Way to Cook –I am compiling a cookbook with my favourite recipes, hints and tips to sell to raise money.
