Hi. In July 2015 I'm taking part in an expedition to Leh, India, where I will be helping to build a school for local children and I will also be going on an 8 day trek in the Himalayas. I'll be going with 15 other people from my school and the trip is organised by Adventure Lifesigns. I'm doing this to increase my global citizenship skills and to take part in a challenging experience. I know it will be difficult and testing but I'm really looking forward to visiting a part of the world that I have never been to and helping children of a different culture who don't have the benefits and lifestyle that I do. However, to be able to undertake this amazing trip I have to raise several thousand pounds. I'm doing a whole range of fundraising activities, including cake sales, prize draws, events, a sponsored run and recording a Christmas song. I'd really appreciate any help you can give to support me in my efforts, so please donate as generously as you are able to. As a special thank you, once you've donated you'll get an email which includes a link to download my song. Many thanks, Ellie.
