Founded by Derbyshire students Joe and Alex McDermott in 2016, this project raises funds for the Good Hope School in Lilongwe, Malawi. This year, James McCrea and Leo Fox White will be fundraising.
So far, you have raised £25,351 and provided a new classroom, perimeter fence, building repairs, desks and chairs, water well covers, IT equipment, stationery, first aid kits and training, sports equipment, books and globes.
EVERY DONATED PENNY goes to the school - unlike many charities, any visits or personal costs are met by the organisers!

An update on the school
Due to the Coronavirus, the school needs a 'fumigation' every 14 days. This involves using disinfectant spray to clean walls and equipment. Hand washing stations, a bucket and soap are in place for santitisation, as well as a breakfast program, put in place for the most undernourished.
A gate and school perminiter wall have been installed to stop theft. New toilets are now being used, they consist of a metal pan that you stand on with a cistern high up on the wall. The old toilets are now in the process of being repaired.
Please keep donations coming in.
