ST ALBANS: A charitable teenager is gearing up to spend a year teaching children in Honduras during his gap year.

Mark Perry, 18, will be heading off to the Latin American country in August – not before he raises nearly £5,000 for the educational charity sending him on the mission, Scotland-based Project Trust.

The Sandringham School pupil, of Woodfield Way, St Albans, beat off stiff competition to be selected for the project and is preparing to head to Scotland for a five day training course ahead of the trip.

He has a raft of fundraising ideas planned to raise the money he has pledged to Project Trust, including a ‘race night’ next Saturday, May 14, which will be held at Sandringham School. Tickets cost £10, which will include a fish and chip supper, and there will be a licensed bar and raffle.

If anyone is interested in attending, sponsoring a race or races or providing a raffle prize email mark@alternativereality.cz. To sponsor Mark visit his fundraising page http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/mark.projecttrust
