A TEENAGER from Brightlingsea is fundraising for a volunteer trip to Africa.

Victoria Bond, 17, hopes to spend the summer in Ghana working in a nursery.

The Colne College pupil is currently studying health and social care, and plans to go to university to study child nursing.

She will volunteer with Volunteer West Africa to help set up a nursery in Oshieye, Ghana, but needs to raise money to pay for the trip.

Victoria, of Lower Park Road, has already organised some fundraising events but if anyone can help support her volunteering she can be reached at victoriabond96@hotmail.co.uk.
