A WETHERBY student has been selected to take part in a volunteering project to help build children’s playgrounds in Africa this summer.

Jenny Whytock, 23, a Leeds Metropolitan University student, will take part in the East African Playgrounds charity project in Jinja, Uganda.

As part of a team, Jenny will be helping build two children’s playgrounds in local primary schools as well as helping out in the local community and schools themselves.

The charity project was set up four years ago by two ex university students Cara Powell and Tom Gill.

So far Jenny has raised £278.15 towards her £600 total.

To raise more funds she will be packing customers bags at Morrisons in Wetherby on Sunday July 1.
