A Fiver For Farr? Asks Thomas Morris and Relocation Agent Network
Thomas Morris Sales & Lettings, and Relocation Agent Network are pleased to announce their support and sponsorship of Emily Farr, 18, in her charity work with Restless Development, a youth led development agency empowering young people to bring about positive change - and they are asking others to help by donating just £5!
Emily, from St Neots, will travel to Zambia for 3 months as part of the UK Government funded International Citizen Service (ICS) programme. She will work in partnership with Zambian volunteers to help lift some of the world’s poorest communities out of poverty and help bring forward developments in many different community aspects.
Emily's specific voluntary work includes raising awareness of HIV/AIDS, as well as advocating for women's rights, community development and helping with CV and employment skills.During her trip, she will be staying with a local family and learning to adapt to their way of life and strong held traditions.
Emily is currently on a gap year between sixth form and university, and said "It is important to me that I do something worthwhile during this time, and what better way to spend it than helping others." But this experience does not come with out its drawbacks, "My whole lifestyle is going to change whilst I'm out there, I'll have no bed, running water or electricity for the entire time I'm out there. On top of that, I'll have very limited contact with loved ones - I think that's what I'll struggle with the most".
Before she leaves for Africa, she must raise £800 for Restless Development to cover some of the costs of the trip. Thomas Morris Sales & Lettings, along with Relocation Agent Network, are pleased to have donated toward Emily's fundraising, as well as offering support and advice in her campaigning.
