About

Kelly McCrory, Leanne Henderson & Donald Miller are hosting a series of events to raise money for The Mattress Appeal.

Event details

Let Us Shine Mattress Appeal

The Let Us Shine Academy offers education to young girls from the poorest families in Kpandai Ghana who otherwise would have no access to school. Thanks to the school extension and new High School, these girls have the opportunity to complete their studies in full whilst boarding at the academy and crucially receiving 3 meals a day, vaccinations and a safe environment to study and live.

Due to the expansion of the school and heavily used resources over the years we have an urgent need to buy and replace existing old mattresses for the girls to sleep on. 

We have 216 boarding students currently and hope to buy each of them a new mattress.

Thanks to Barclays all fundraising on here will be matched £ for £, meaning that for just a £10 donation you can buy a girl a brand new mattress in time for Christmas.

Thank you so much for your generosity & support!
