They are in the process of setting up a new garden area for students to use and so would be hugely grateful if you could raise money for, and help to put up, a new shed in the garden area. This would constitute the main bulk of the challenge, however there are also some old bits of fencing that need taking down which could also form part of the project, if possible. Can you help?
