Lauren & Leanne on their last mission to Ghana

A Bootle church is sending 12 people on a mission to Ghana to donate supplies to local schools and build a fresh-water well for a village.

The trip is being organised by Lauren Hayes, who originally visited Ghana in 2011, and has since attracted a group of 12 who are set to visit Ghana with her alongside her husband and friends.

“In November, I spoke to [Northfield] church about an expedition to Ghana which myself, my husband Andy and friend Leanne were going on. I said that if anyone wanted to join us they were very welcome to,” she said.

“The response we received was massive and we are now a solid team of 12 with vast difference in experience, age and reasons for going on the trip which is just great.”

Organised in conjunction with Rescue Aid foundation, the group plans to spend over a week in Ghana and will visit schools, orphanages, hospitals and children’s homes in order to give donations and provide aid to local children in need.

Northfield Church is appealing for monetary donations as well as school supplies, clothes, toiletries and toys that can be taken to Ghana in order to donate to the locals.
