A WOMAN is preparing to travel to South Africa to help build a school.

Nicola Jackson, who works at Santander in Wrexham, will head to KwaZulu Natal, South Africa, on September 6.

She will join with 39 colleagues from her bank’s branches across the country to build the school as part of a joint project between NSPCC and the bank.

For five days the volunteers will muck in to build classrooms, kitchens and toilet blocks

The 22-year-old decided to apply for the project due to her experience working as a volunteer counsellor for NSPCC ChildLine last May.

She said: “Working at ChildLine gave me a great insight into the fantastic work the NSPCC do for children and young people, which is what motivated me to apply for the Santander and NSPCC South Africa project when it was advertised in work.

“I didn’t think I would get picked for such a fantastic project and didn’t mention to my friends or family I had applied, so it was a big shock when I found out I have gained a place.”

The NSPCC has set Nicola the challenge of raising £2,000, with the trip having already been funded by Santander.

She has already raised more than £1,000.  

“I’m overwhelmed by the generosity and support,” added Nicola, of Rhyl.

Staff also took part in a sponsored walk up Snowdon to raise further
funds.
