Two volunteers from this year's Africa Adventure project, heading out to Ghana in November, have braved the early morning's two days in a row to aid their fundraising efforts. Lucy Earthroll and Georgia Partridge were today at the Trust offices bright and early for a live interview on BBC Radio Suffolk's Big Breakfast Show to talk about the trip which leaves for the tiny village of Woe in the Voltic region of Ghana this November. Georgia and Lucy were also up and out in Ipswich yesterday too as the pair are now regular car booters with all of their profits going to their fundraising targets. The girls have another event on tomorrow this one is also from 7 o clock but thankfully for the teenagers, its 7pm.
They are holding a Clairvoyant Night at Kesgrave High School with popular clairvoyant medium Fiona Nichols. Tickets are £10 payable on the door, there will also be refreshments provided and a prize draw too.
