Charity Three Peaks of Yorkshire walk
Posted Wednesday, 21 March 2012 by Richard
Wingfinger partner Richard, along with his daughter Becky and friends completed the 24.5 mile Yorkshire Three Peaks Walk on 17 March 2012.
Becky is fundraising for her trip to Bangladesh in April, as part of a Voluntary Services Overseas (VSO) Global Exchange group. Global Exchange is a Global Volunteering Experience which supports young people from all backgrounds to make a real difference to some of the world’s poorest people. VSO is an International Development Charity that works through and with Volunteers.
Whilst in Bangladesh Becky will live in a community in a host person’s home, learn first-hand about the culture and share skills, creativity and learning. In Bangladesh she will contribute to VSO Bangladesh’s Model Village concept – where poor and excluded people benefit from economic growth and social development. In the model village, community groups (Youth Clubs and Citizen Committees) are mobilised to work for the village development on issues affecting their communities. The aim of VSO Bangladesh is then to share best practice outcomes from these villages with many more in the same geographical area to maximise impact.
You can donate on her Just giving page (the money will go directly to VSO): www.justgiving.com/becky-lether.
