A 14-year-old girl from Tilney All Saints is aiming to raise thousands of pounds to help improve lives in Africa next year.
Scarlett Lewis-Garnett plans to take part in a four-week volunteering expedition in Kenya during the summer of 2021, where she will assist with projects such as building classrooms and supplying clean water to local communities.
To do so, she needs to raise £4,000 with several fundraising events being organised throughout this year.
Imogen Garnett, Scarlett's mum, said: "The expedition is through a company called Camps International along with Marshland High School.
"She needs to raise £4,000 in order to take part and this event will be the first of many over the coming months."
