Rac­ing to­wards Cen­tral Amer­ica

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

TWO teenagers have en­listed the help of friends to boost their chances of em­bark­ing on the trip of a lifetime.

Year 12 stu­dents from Chal­font Com­mu­nity Col­lege, Ja­cob Relf, 16, and Oli Ryan, 17, raised £1,500 on Satur­day to help fund a trip to Cen­tral Amer­ica.

They held a race night at their school in Nar­cot Lane, Chal­font St Peter, serv­ing fish and chips to friends and fam­ily.

They need to raise £3,695 plus money for vac­ci­na­tions and kit for a trip next year to Costa Rica and Nicaragua with group World Chal­lenge.

“Peo­ple were very gen­er­ous and we had a re­ally suc­cess­ful raf­fle,” said Ja­cob’s mother Katie Relf.

“Ja­cob and Oli would like to thank all the lo­cal busi­nesses who do­nated to the raf­fle.”
