Charity Talent Show – Friday 20th March 2015
In the summer of 2016, a number of students have decided to undertake the huge journey to Peru through the charity ‘Camps International,’ in order to assist with the construction of schools and general conservational work. Our main sites for the expedition will be the magnificent Andean basin, the culturally diverse Lake Titicaca and the picturesque region around the Colca Canyon. The communities in each camp are very diverse and our project work will aid to improve their standard of living.
For this to happen, students Tom Morley and Callum Russell have input hours of work in order to organise a charity talent show night on Friday 20th March.
