£7,600 target for Peru charity trip

Sleaford Target.

Two Sleaford (UK) teenagers are set to take on the challenge of a lifetime working with orphans in Peru.

Bryony Mason and Jenny Kluge, year 11 students at Kesteven and Sleaford High School, hope to visit Southern Peru next summer with 12 other girls from the school.

While there they will undertake two weeks of charity work helping with projects and working with children in orphanages followed by two weeks exploring the country.

Bryony says, "We feel this will be an excellent experience for all of us, by being able to give something back to the community."

The duo need to raise £3,800 each to make the trip possible and have already undertaken many fundraising activities, including bag packing, car boots sales and cake stalls.

"We’d love companies and locals within the town to help support us and we are both currently looking for sponsors to help our expedition become more of a reality rather than a dream," they declared to local media.
