Louise off on African odyssey

Have your say

A SHEFFIELD student is off to an African village this July on a volunteer project - and is seeking financial backing to fund the trip.

Louise Balderson, of Richmond Road, Handsworth, has been accepted on the Volunteer Eco Students Abroad Programme.

She will help install fresh running water, refurbish dilapidated schools, teach children English and help with other essential building projects.

Anyone able to help should call Louise directly on 07500 338 997.
