Bees Abroad seeks to reduce poverty through beekeeping. Volunteer project managers use their skills, working in the local community group, to develop a viable project which will become self-sustainable.

The charity is sending a local beekeeper, who has worked with the school to teach the students about bees, to Uganda.

Venetia Rist is a member of West Norfolk and King’s Lynn Beekeeping Association with art teacher Lynda Lee.

Ms Lee said: “I wanted to help send Venetia to Uganda and to raise awareness of bees and how vital they are to our planet.”

By taking collecting buckets around school, the team raised over £150 on the day.
