My story

VMM International are an international development and volunteering organisation. They work with communities in areas of great need across Africa in education, healthcare, and community development to create a world where we live in the shelter of one another. I will be volunteering in St John Mary Vianney secondary school in Fort Portal, Uganda in September and October this year. I will be teaching Senior 1 and Senior 2 learners English. There are up to 76 learners in a class! I plan to write a blog and to keep you all informed about my preparations and what happens while I am there.

I will be having a fundraiser quiz night to support both the organisation I am travelling with and the host organisation for the time I work there. It will be held on Sunday 21st July at 7pm at Holy Name Church Hall, 200 Hillpark Road off Mansewood Road G43 1BU.

Entry: £5 (tea/coffee and biscuits included)

Drinks (soft and hard!) on sale

Raffle with prizes.
