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.”
