Recent leavers Rebecca Nicholson and Anna Wateridge (2022 Leavers), are going to Mumbai in January, to support the OSCAR Foundation.

Before I leave to volunteer in January 2024, my goal is to raise a minimum of £1,500 for OSCAR International. These funds will help further support this amazing charity and continue to give opportunities for these severely disadvantaged children to have a better life. Key examples of how the foundation will use these funds include £50 to purchase a bicycle for two children to share to get to school and programmes (many travel walking 10 km or more); hearing aids, glasses, and medical support for those children with disabilities.
I have created a JustGiving page and would be very grateful for any donations to help me achieve this goal. I will be documenting my time in India on my shared Instagram with the friend I am travelling with, Anna Wateridge, and hope you will support and follow us on this adventure!'
Good luck to Rebecca & Anna and we look forward to hearing more about their work!.
