Julianna Ball has reached her financial target and will shortly be
travelling to Uganda to start work with local children.
To make her trip a
reality Julianna needed to raise £4,000 and this has been achieved.
fund-raiser was a variety show in Hethersett Village Hall at the end of
April which proved a great success and raised £445.50 and pushed the
amount past Julianna’s target.
Those taking part in
the show included Hethersett Players, Sue Tuckwood, Rebecca Mallett, Sam
Jessop, Alison Walker-Morecroft, David Wall, Judith Aslin, Lavinia
Ganley, St Remigius Church Choir with Duincan Pigg and Rita Bircham and
the band Cherub. The evening was compered by John Head.
“I would like to say
a big thank you to everyone who helped to make the evening so fantastic
and all the people who worked behind the scenes,” Julianna said.
Julianna, who is 17,
will be attending special training for the trip in July and plans to fly
out to Uganda in August. She will be working in the Budaka Cheshire Home
in the north east of the country where she will be looking after
physically and mentally disabled children aged between three and 16.
Julianna will be
working under the banner of the Project Trust, an educational registered
charity which was founded in 1967 and which has already sent 4,000 young
volunteers aged between 17 and 19 to projects in 24 countries.
