Students studying on the Professional Theatre Programme at Cronton Sixth Form College have made an incredibly heart-warming gesture to the Rock of Joy Trust charity, raising money to help build new facilities at a school in Uganda.
The Rock of Joy Trust are a charity from the North West of England who are helping to raise money for three different schools in Uganda where working conditions are poor.
After carrying out a number of fantastic performances last year, students of the PTP decided to donate the funds generated from the shows to support the building of brand new toilet facilities at a Rock of Joy school in Uganda.
The previous toilets at the school were in a very poor and unhygienic condition. With help from the money raised, the school now has new hygienic toilet blocks containing a fully functioning flushing facility, septic tanks and a system that reclaims rainwater.
Daniel Cambridge, Professional Theatre Programme Tutor at Cronton said, “I am so proud of my students, what they have done is an amazing gesture. Hopefully the new facilities can improve the lives of the pupils at the Rock of Joy School in Uganda.”
