PUPILS in Oakham have been given a helping hand with their African fundraising venture thanks to a cash boost from house builder.

Developer Linden Homes has given young fundraisers at Catmose College a cheque for £250 as they raise funds in the hope to change the lives of villagers in the Volta region of Ghana.

The funds will be spent on providing a clean water supply and basic sanitation to the 500 villagers in Eugemot, and help expand the local orphanage.

Linden Homes area sales manager Karen Pitcher said: “We were delighted to make a contribution and wish the students every success with this very worthwhile cause and look forward to hearing of their progress.”
