A BROMSGROVE woman is taking her granddaughter on a trip to Africa to support the work of a charity.

Rosemary Aveyard and Xeina Aveyard, are travelling out to the town of Mtunthama, in Africa, for a special trip this month.

The pair are going out to support Medic Malawi, a small charity that funds a local hospital, a clinic and an orphanage for 70 children.

The volunteers carried out various fundraising activities to fund the trip including two quizzes, cake sales and a charity breakfast event.

Xeina, a pupil at South Bromsgrove High School who will be celebrating her 16th birthday during the trip, and Rosemary are both members of St Andrew's Church where they heard about the charity and its volunteer work.

During the three-week trip the pair will be carrying out various tasks for the charity including helping out in an orphanage and helping to paint a newly-built eye clinic.

Rosemary said they are appealing for generous townsfolk to donate general items for the charity. A box has been left outside the porch of the Sandhills Road-based church, where items can be left.
