Please see below a message from the team organising the South Africa Trip
“A message to our supporters regarding the Ashford Parish Trip to South Africa:
Thank you so much to everyone that has supported us with our fundraising whether it was through donations, attending our events or spreading the word about our project.
Unfortunately due to COVID 19, we had to cancel our trip as it was not safe for us to go out to South Africa to do the work we had planned. We had hoped to go out to South Africa in 2021 but unfortunately, after lots of thought the charity that organises these trips, Urban Saints, have made the difficult decision to cancel overseas trips for next year.
As a group, we have made the decision to donate the money we have raised through our fundraising to Urban Saints to support them in the fantastic work they do with children and young people both in the UK and overseas. This donation will also help the charity to reach out to vulnerable children and young people that may need support during these tough times. The amount that has been donated to Urban Saints is £3110.71.
We are so grateful for the support everyone has shown us and cannot thank you enough. Our young people that were part of this project are gutted to not be going to work in South Africa but they have done a fantastic job of fundraising and spreading the word of the great work Urban Saints do.
Thank you again for all of your love and support.
