Canford are pleased to have been able to support Charlotte Woodcock from St Robert of Newminster Sixth Form College who is travelling to Nepal with World Challenge on an once-in-a-lifetime expedition to help build much-needed classrooms for local school children.
The students are in charge of their own budget for the two-week adventure, which takes-in a 5 day hike along the Mardi Himal trek in the Annapurna range. The experience aims to empower and develop them outside of the classroom, building essential life skills.
World Challenge encourages the students to raise as much of their expedition fees as possible, giving guidance and ideas along the way. Charlotte has been successful in raising over £3000 through a variety of activities which has included Bag Packing, Raffles, Car Boot & Cake sales.
Everyone at Canford is wishing Charlotte the best of luck as she sets off on her adventure.
