A group of Royston students have been getting creative in the coronavirus lockdown fundraising for a trip to Malawi next year.
The King James Academy Royston trip will see 15 students from years 8, 9 and 10 head to the African nation.
Head of Year 9 Mikaela Robinson said: “The trip will build confidence, independence and responsibility. They will be working on a charitable project as well as experiencing life in Malawi.”
Students have delivered menus for Royston Tandoori and sold plants and cakes outside their homes to raise funds.
Syed Miah from Royston Tandoori said “I am keen to support the students and have been so impressed with their hard work and reliability in delivering 11000 menus.”
