Fundraising plans are already underway in the new college year, as International Baccalaureate students at Truro College continue their support of the Shewula community in Swaziland.
Before the temperatures drop too much and there’s still a hint of summer, two students and a lecturer will be saying goodbye to their hair and hello to a more a streamlined look as they take part in head shaving for the Boom Shewula Wula charity.
International Baccalaureate students Kelly Bowden and Ollie Carruthers will be joined by Geography lecturer Annette Eatock on 26th September for the buzz of clippers! A safe distance away from the flying hair there will also be a cake sale, to maximise fundraising potential of the day.
Truro College students founded and have funded the charity, Boom Shewula Wula, since 2001. The money continues to improve facilities in informal schools allowing impoverished children, many of whom are orphaned as a result of AIDS, to receive at least one meal daily and enhance the learning experience for hundreds of others. Focus is also placed on the formal schools and Boom Shewula Wula supports pupils as a result of the contributions made by donors nationwide.
If anyone would like to donate they can do so via www.truro-penwith.ac.uk/information/shewula/ or by calling the College on 01872 267000.
