School pupils are going on the trip of a lifetime to Africa.

A group of 30 teenagers will be travelling to Namibia to rebuild a children’s playground and take part in a desert trek.

The pupils will be joined by teachers plus leaders from the British Expedition Society.

Each student, from five schools in Bolsover, North Derbyshire, has raised £1,500 to be able to go on the trip.
