The 14-year-old Ernulf Academy student is set to go on his expedition in 2019, but needs raise £4,080 to pay for flights and accommodation.

Toby said, “It’s a four-week expedition via Camps International and I shall take part in many activities to help the local community, such as digging wells and foundations for houses and schools. I will also take part in animal and wildlife preservation and many other activities.

“I am doing this as I like to challenge myself and help other people who need it most, I knew this opportunity would only come once so snatched it up quickly, however this trip does come at a very high cost.”

Toby is doing various things to fund raise, including, a sponsored bike ride.

“I have a sponsored bike ride coming up which is 170-mile round trip over two days to Essex and back and would be so grateful for any sponsors. I am happy to feature any businesses that help me with sponsorship on my Camps International T-shirt,” he added.
