Text books for Uganda

By General News


Larches had an excess of textbooks which the school has accumulated over the years, we could no longer store them so we had a decision to make!

Mr Nuttall, our Behaviour Manager at Larches, made contact with Liz Tongue, one of the main fundraisers at the Pearl of Africa Charity, asking if she could give these books a home. Liz came to the rescue and welcomed our donation of books, as they will be treasured by the students in Uganda.

The Pearl of Africa raises money and resources for underprivileged children in Uganda through education and care. They have five schools to suit all ages and the textbooks will be greeted with open arms and smiles. It was our pleasure to help.
