“Following last year’s blitz, I wanted to do more for the charity, and this year there is a team of five of us from Warboys, going to South Africa on November 5 for one week to build and renovate schools in the township of Khayelitsha. After the blitz, the charity puts in place the infrastructure for the best education of the pupils. Our previous schools have gone from an 80% failure, to a 70% pass rate in two years.”

So far, they have raised £14,000 but are still around £3,000 short of their target.
