THREE months in India helping to provide access to clean water await Emily Barnes.

The 24-year-old from Bognor Regis will travel to the sub-continent in May as a volunteer team leader for Raleigh International.

She will take charge of a group of young helpers and oversee projects that focus on safe water and sanitation, protecting vulnerable environments and building resilient communities.

Emily, of Tennyson Road, said: “The work is part of International Citizen Service, which brings young people together to fight poverty and make a difference where it is needed most.”

Emily completed a degree in textile finishing at university in Norwich and became a charity shop manager. She has left the job to prepare for her trip to south India.

She needs to raise at least £800 for Raleigh International which helps deliver the service. Emily is holding a sale from midday on April 12 at the Newtown Social Club on Greencourt Drive, North Bersted.

Anyone who would like to help her can email emily4raleigh@hotmail.com.
