This summer, eleven senior pupils from St Columb’s College will travel to Tanzania in East Africa with local charity, Children in Crossfire.
The St Columb’s boys will be accompanied on the trip by charity founder Richard Moore and other Children in Crossfire staff.
During their stay, the students will visit a number of projects supported by the Derry charity including hospitals, schools and homes.
In a bid to raise funds for the trip, the St Columb’s students have, over the past year, organised a number of parish collections, draws, bag-packing, bucket collections, cake sales, and in-school competitions.
They have also received generous donations from the local community.
In Tanzania, they will see at first hand how this money is to be put to good use for the benefit of others.
This Sunday (5 p.m.), a concert will take place in the boys’ Buncrana Road school to raise funds for both Children in Crossfire and the trip to Tanzania.
Pupils will perform a wide repertoire of acts including singing, dancing and instrumental pieces.
There will be a door prize and raffles.
Tickets are available at the school reception priced £5 each.
