The Vale of Llangollen Lions Club has kindly donated this giant milk chocolate Easter Egg to help raise funds for my Volunteer Eco Students Abroad expedition to South Africa in July! There are 100 tickets available at £1 each. The winner of the raffle will be contacted on Friday 6th April 2012. Please leave a comment if you'd like to buy a ticket(s) and we can arrange to meet. Thanks, Sophie Ann Hughes X

Sophie Hughes

Sophie Hughes has been accepted onto the Volunteer Eco Students Abroad program and will be travelling to South Africa in July 2012 to take part in an important sustainable community development project.

I am seeking sponsorship to enable me to participate in the programme and complete essential volunteer work in a KwaZulu-Natal village.

I will work in conjunction with the villagers and the village chief in addressing the major issues faced by the village and the local schools such as a lack of fresh running water, dilapidated schools and generally poor infrastructure.

Your donation will help to facilitate the means for implementing a major community development project, which will encompass construction in addition to educating the community on matters of conservation, sustainability, health, hygiene and English proficiency.

By sponsoring me, you will be directly assisting with the costs involved in participating in the program.

These costs are significant and include hiring local skilled trades people to supervise and assist in the building projects, building materials and donations to local organisations.

Every volunteer will complete a minimum of 40 hours of hands on community based volunteer work.

I would appreciate donations of any amount, which will enable me to participate in this vital community development program.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for me to make a difference donating my time and energy into volunteering overseas next summer.

If you are able to help through donation or help with fund raising, even in the smallest way it would be greatly appreciated.

Please contact Sophie Hughes directly either on her mobile: 07525457193, telephone: 01691 773817, e-mail: sophhughes@hotmail.co.uk or address: 45 Oaklands Road, Chirk Bank, Chirk, Wrexham LL14 5DW UK
