Mother and son combo, Nicola and Will Adams, recently volunteered for RIPPLE Africa during the month of October. The pair are our first mother-and-son-team of volunteers who have travelled to experience volunteering together- Nicola as a healthcare volunteer, and Will working on education and environmental projects. The pair signed up to RIPPLE Africa just 6 weeks before beginning their volunteering, however in such a short time, they managed not only to organise themselves to prepare for their time in Malawi, but to organise a fundraising campaign too. The pair have raised over £3000- an AMAZING feat in such a short space of time- and the money has been put to excellent use including bicycle ambulances, a much needed operation for a child in the community, and support for RIPPLE Africa’s ongoing projects in Malawi. We just wanted to say a huge thank you to Nicola and Will for their hard work in Malawi, and their fantastic efforts in community fundraising for the charity.
As a thank you to their own donors, Will and Nicola have created the video below showing their time in Malawi and the way their donations were spent:
RIPPLE Africa really values our community fundraisers, who are the bread and butter of our charity’s financial support. With our new website blog, we hope to feature more of our special fundraisers as they continue to meet their targets and make a huge difference to RIPPLE Africa.
