  • I have included a kit list but could I stress at this point that students do not need to be buying new clothes. Old shorts/T-shirts are acceptable due to the nature of the work we will be doing. A copy of the kit list can be downloaded here


  • Equipment list of items needed for activities when we are in The Gambia available for download here


  • As part of the trip each everyone is set the challenge of raising £50. This money is used to support some of the work we do whilst in The Gambia. For example, the purchase of paint, school resources, mosquito nets etc. We will be talking to the students this week about this.
  • On the Give Penny page we have launched our first 'Gambiathon'. The challenge is to complete a marathon distance within a month. Don't worry you don't have to run it, you can walk the distance. Why not sign up or sponsor someone? Click on the Give Penny link and have a look.
