HANNAH Ford will be among a group of Cheshire Fire Cadets heading out to Nepal next year to build a school.
Hannah, who is in year 9 at Tarporley High School, is a member of Tarporley Fire Cadets who meet every Tuesday at the village fire station.
Sixteen Cheshire Fire Cadets and nine volunteer leaders will head out in the autumn of 2017 but first they need to raise over £70,000. This will fund the building of a new school and enable the team to go to Nepaland finish off the build where they will also meet and work with the children and villagers who will be using the facilities for generations to come. A year on from the first earthquake in Nepal, children are still living and studying under tarpaulins, so it’simportant that the cadets raise the money to enable them.The trip to Nepal will take Hannah out of her comfort zone and into a place where she will need to push herself, trekking on foot through the Himalayas before getting to work on the school.Hannah will be running lots of independent fundraisers over the coming months to hopefully raise sponsorship cash.For more info please visit the Classroom in the Clouds website www.classroomsintheclouds.org.
Hannah recently took part in the Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service Lecturette competition coming 3rd.
