Lola going to Africa

One of our young people, Lola Dean, is planning to visit Africa in 2025 to volunteer at a school in Kenya. She needs to raise a significant sum of money to proceed on this trip and as part of the fund raising, she is undertaking a sponsored walk from Matlock to Derby, a journey of about 20 miles.

If you able to sponsor her, please visit

We will try to follow her progress and wish her and the family every success in this challenge.
