In the summer of 2013 a group of young people from The Community Church went to Malawi with Tearfund to work with the Eagles Project. In the year preceding we had the daunting task of raising the £23,000 we needed to get there. After several months of fundraising, we managed it- and even ended up with extra to take with us!
It was an amazing trip– click here to read the group’s journal.
