Beverley Girl Holds Quiz Night To Help Tackle Poverty In Uganda

A girl is holding a quiz night at the in on Wednesday 5th December, to support a project that tackles poverty in Uganda.

, 20, will to Uganda in January to work on the development programme for three months.

Lizzy will team up with Ugandan volunteers to tackle some of the problems facing the local community, after getting a place on the government funded International Citizen Service (ICS).

ICS allows young aged 18-25 to contribute to long-term development projects in countries like Burkina Faso, Sierra Leone and Nepal. The scheme offers young the chance to develop personally and learn about team working and leadership on projects that are of genuine value to communities around the world. On return to the UK, ICS volunteers undertake an ‘Action at Home Project’, ensuring that their new skills also benefit their local communities.

Lizzy said:

“My quiz night is a way of making sure developing countries can continue to benefit from the work of future volunteers, so it’s vital I reach my fundraising target. I’m also in the process of training for the Grim Up North challenge as another part of my fundraising.”

“Whilst running, I’m thinking of ways to make the quiz night fun and interesting. I hope that my guests will really enjoy themselves and support the cause!”

“The project I’m working on is run by the development charity, Restless Development and aims to raise awareness of issues such as sexual and reproductive health, civic participation and sustainable livelihoods.”

“This is a unique opportunity to work alongside from a different culture who have requested help from young volunteers to fight poverty and make a difference where it’s needed most. I’m really excited to be there, it will be an amazing experience!”
