Grace Whorley in College Two has been selected to volunteer in Tanzania with Voluntary Service Overseas on an International Citizen Service placement. She will be volunteering in Tanzania for just under 3 months from September. Whilst in Tanzania, Grace will be staying with a host family in Iringa in order to fully immerse herself into the local culture and will be volunteering in local primary schools to improve children’s learning and participation.

Her first challenge is to raise £800 towards the work of VSO and their ICS partners. The money raised will go towards the overall costs of ICS, ensuring they can continue sending youth volunteers, like herself, to the developing world to make a lasting difference in disadvantaged communities.

To start her fundraising journey, she will be holding a £1 BAKE SALE on Monday 23rd and Tuesday 24th April at bars in the dining room! We would be delighted if you could help by contributing baked goods – cakes, buns, biscuits, brownies – homemade or shop bought treats are welcomed. Could we please ensure all home baking and shop bought goods are nut free as Bootham School is a nut free school. The more items we have to sell the more money we can raise for this worthwhile cause. Items can be dropped at reception on the morning of the bake sale, with tins and plates returned for collection by 4 p.m. Thank you in advance!
