A Bedford schoolgirl is organising a charity dinner and dance to help raise money for a volunteering expedition to Tanzania next summer.
15-year-old Abigayle Ojo is a pupil at Mark Rutherford School, and she needs to raise £4,500 in order to take part in the Camps International expedition.
During the four week trip, Abi and her group will help build a house, dig water wells and teach English.
“I want to help make a difference to the lives of some of the most deprived Tanzanian’s who have no access to basic necessities such as, clean drinking water, sanitation, education or even a home,” said Abi.
The schoolgirl has already raised over £700 and has arranged the event at Church Lane Community Centre to add to her total.
The dinner and dance takes place on Saturday 5 October and includes a three course meal, sponsored by Sacha’s Kitchen, and entertainment from DJ Brownings and DJ Frenchy. Tickets are £30 per person and under 15s are £10. Family tickets are available for £65.
