Three Garstang Scouts are seeking funding for a trip to build an education centre in Africa.


Jorge Pollard is one of three West Lancs Explorer Scouts raising funds for the expedition to Malawi next summer to help build a centre in the village of Mangani.

Jorge must raise £1,955 to fund the three-week volunteering expedition and has organised a Gin and Ale night to help meet the costs.
