Roselle's Blog - Charity trip to Borneo

Home » Newsroom » Roselle's Blog - Charity trip to Borneo

Hi, you may have read in an article on Tarvinonline that two of my classmates that live locally, Daniella Bool and Megan Latham are trying to raise money to go on a charity trip to Borneo in July 2015.

Dani and Her Mum


Between them they need to raise a total of £8000. So they need a bit of help!
Megan and Dani are doing a number of fund raising events. This last weekend they had a coffee morning at Tarvin Methodist Church which was lovely, they raised £250.00 and I especially liked the cup cakes!
So what will they be doing in Borneo?
Well, as part of a team, over 4 weeks, they will be working on a number of Camps International projects designed to improve the living standards of rural people and local wildlife. They will be involved in a number of projects including forest regeneration to protect the wildlife, building community centres, painting classrooms, building desks, assisting with harvesting and planting and teaching English.
I caught up with both of them at the coffee morning.

Megan

Megan said 'I'm really looking forward to this life changing event' and Dani said 'I'm really excited about visiting this new country and speaking to the local people'. Borneo is the third largest island in the world and is between Thailand and Australia in the South China Sea.
To donate contact:

'Thank you and toodlepip', Roselle
