2BR launches Uganda appeal

Uganda

(Updated 1:40pm 19th June 2017)

This morning on the breakfast show Olly Houldsworth set news editor Sarah Collins a challenge.

Over the course of this week she'll be out and about across Lancashire collecting unwanted clothes.

It's after pupils at Queen Elizabeth Grammar school got in touch with a request. They're heading to Uganda next month to carry out work at school.

So far through various events and challenges the teenagers have managed to raise £10,000.

 

They want to take out donations of clothes, shoes, trainers and glasses for the 250 children at the school. Many of them are orphans.

Here's the moment Olly threw down the gauntlet....

If you've got any old clothes you'd like to donate get in touch with Sarah below and she'll arrange to come and collect them.

Or alternatively you can drop them off at

Brunlea Travel

47 - 49 Hammerton Street,

Burnley, Lancashire,

BB11 1LT
