Fundraising for Tanzania

Fundraising efforts for the trip to Tanzania are underway with students selling cakes and a virtual climb of Mount Kilimanjaro.

Twenty BISB students have signed up to take part in the Tanzania Expedition 2018 in March. To support our Tanzanian charity, Seeway, we must raise 7000 EUR to buy construction materials, solar light units, goats and pay for local tradesmen who will teach bricklaying, plastering and carpentery skills.

 

On Saturday last week, we held our first fundraising event. We decided to have a small stall selling doughnuts, muesli bars, sweets and juices at the DVAC U19 Volleyball tournament hosted in the new PE complex. As soon as we came in we started making posters so we could advertise our business. We put up the posters near the gym and around school. We also had to decide on prices so that we could make a small profit on each sale. The PTA were kind enough to offer us some cash flow for our stall so that we could purchase the goods. We thought it would be a good idea to take the goods to the customers so we started going around selling our products. As soon as we thought we had sold enough we came back. Soon enough people came and started buying our products: the doughnuts and the sweets. After a day full of busy work, we decided to pack up. We reserved all leftovers and we decided to put them in the staff room because it would be good for our business. And now if we look at the money jar in the staff room we can see that it is full.

 

We have now made a start towards reaching our target. Please support any other Tanzania events.

Mr Swaine tells us more about the Tanzania Expedition 2018

Preparations for the Tanzania Expedition 2018 are now well and truly underway. Last weekend the Tanzania Team supported the DVAC KS4/5 volleyball tournament held at BISB by ensuring that competitors and visitors were amply nourished with snacks, goodies and drinks. Well done to all team members and especially those who made it into school on Saturday 18th November to carry out the fundraising project.

 

This weekend, the Tanzania Team will literally be taking things ‘one step further’ or should that be quite a few steps?

 

On Saturday 25th November, the students and staff involved in the expedition will effectively scale the heights of Mount Kilimanjaro on the school site with a sponsored walk, run and skip that equates to the 5,895 metres (19,341 ft) above sea level of the highest mountain in Africa. It promises to be an extremely exhausting, but hugely rewarding challenge!
