Health and Social Care students have been in engaged in project to collect and send second hand books to deprived schools in Zimbabwe.
During the year both students and teachers have donated books that they no longer need. The message has also gone out to local primary and high schools who have also generously donated their second hand books. Currently approximately 8000 books have been donated.
The challenge now is to raise the money needed to ship and deliver to books to the perspective schools. The students are undertaking a 5km sponsored walk in Chantry Park on Thursday the 23rd of October from 11-12pm.
If you would like to donate books or funds towards shipping the books please contact Sharon Mangoma.
