Ugandan book donation delivered by school chaplain Rev'd Nick Sissons

Books collected by Rydal Penrhos’ Ugandan team are on their way to their destination.

Reverend Nick Sissons, Chaplian at the school, drove across to Cambridge to the offices of Afrinspire, a University-based charity, where Mr Ian Sanderson helped him unload the boxes on Monday, February 21.

Ruby James, Will Sissons, Samantha Randall, Sammy Sherrington, Becky Lawton, Gowri Pradeep, Amelia Cole-King, Carmia Kendall, Olivia Rogerson, Fraser Williams, Joshua Meyerratken, Nia Seenan, Isabelle Williams and Alice Waltham will be heading to the country in July, which will be the fifth time that Rydal Penrhos will undergo charity work in Uganda.

Twenty-six boxes were filled with around 700 books donated by the Rydal Penrhos’ Prep School, which contained the core subjects of English, Maths and Science as well as a broad range of reading and reference books.

They have now been despatched to Primary Schools the school has connections to in Uganda.

The other 16 boxes contained around 250 theology books, which the Chaplain is donating to Rev'd Aston, who is a friend of the school based in Mbarara and teaches at a theological college.

Rev’d Sissons, said: "This is the second shipment of books the school has donated and hopefully we may be able to see the books on their arrival in the summer.

“The first shipment of brand-new reading books went out in May 2015 to St Deo's Primary School  Kitooha and Shuuku Vocational Secondary School in Kabwohe and were very gratefully received."
