School friends Lucy Wade and Nina Parrish have been selling Christmas trees to fund charitable expeditions they are embarking on next year – and there’s still some left.
The 16-year-olds are pupils of Kesteven and Grantham Girls’ School and each need to raise at least £3,500 for their trips.
Lucy is going on a school experidition to India Himalaya where she will join locals in building a greenhouse. This will enable the community to grow food all year round.
Meanwhile, Nina is heading off on an independent expedition to Zambia and Botswana and during the trip she will help to build a village school.
The girls decided to sell Christmas trees as a way to make money towards their trips, with an aim of £200 in mind. Already, they and their fellow students have held an all-day barbecue on a Cornish beach, done a sponsored abseil, organised discos and sports talks, and pulled off an Italian-themed party.
The pair have done well so far but would like to sell a few more of the Nordman Fir, a low needle-drop species.
They are being sold from Sedgebrook, with signs directing customers from the A52.
Lucy and Nina can arrange to have trees delivered free of charge this weekend. For more information, or to arrange a delivery, call 01949 844114.
