A big thank you to all the members of the school community at Wolgarston, to the organsations and individuals who have helped the team raise the funds to go to the local churches who have been such an important part of this project.
We will watch and wait for news of each day's activities and wish you well on your time in Africa... May God bless you and the people you meet.
