YOUNG people from Cheshire Fire Service are raising money for a humanitarian trip to Ghana.
Fourteen youngsters aged 13-19 from across the county will be travelling to the village of Adaklu for two weeks in July to build a school.
Frodsham fire cadet leader Julia Shutt said: “We have carried out similar projects before and it has always been a life-changing experience for the cadets taking part.
“They get to open up to and experience other cultures and carry out important work at the same time.
“It’s about tolerance, communication and working to help others.”
Two cadets from Frodsham, Emily Garner, 16, and Danielle Meyer, 17 are among those taking part this year.
The girls each have to raise £2,500 towards the cost of the trip.
Together with other cadets from Frodsham Fire Station, they have already organised a black tie dinner which raised £1,600.
The cadets will be having a charity car wash on Saturday (April 25) with colleagues at Runcorn Fire Station from 10am-4pm.
Then, on May 10, there will be a quiz at Frodsham Conservative Club.
