The fantastic sum of £521.98 was raised and thanks must go to all those who attended or contributed in any way. A group of 15 students and three teachers will be travelling to Peru in partnership with The Vine Trust who will be leading the excursion.

The charity’s mandate is to see disadvantaged communities transformed by providing health and hope to people in them.

Once the group arrive in Peru they will be spending time working with the street kids, helping to understand the issues surrounding their situation as well as building centres which will house and educate the children. They will also help provide clean water to a centre in one of Peru’s earthquake zones.
