Local teenager seeks support and sponsorship for Volunteer trip to Peru
Luke Minett, age 15, is raising money to fund a volunteer trip to Peru in August 2018 to help provide life changing facilities for hundreds of people living in the poorest areas of the country. Arranged through Warden Park School and Camps International, this four week secondment will help build amenities for communities with no sanitation or water, and classrooms for children who currently have never gone to school, as well as creating greenhouses to help small villages grow crops.
Luke says ‘this is an opportunity of a lifetime; I am really looking forward to experiencing the different way of life and doing some good for the communities. I need to raise over four thousand pounds so am spending all my spare time helping out with odd jobs for friends, families and neighbours, and am looking for a summer job. I’m also seeking sponsorship from local businesses: in return their company logo would be displayed on my official trip T shirts and also in photos, and their sponsorship would be mentioned in other promotional activities. All this would be great publicity for the sponsoring companies.’
