A Carrickfergus classroom assistant is to lead a team of young people on a mission trip to Uganda this summer.

Carol Mulligan, who works at Carrickfergus Grammar School, and the party of 18 - 24 years olds from all over Ireland will make the Fields of Life trip in August.

The school has presented Carol with a £630 cheque for the charity.

The first week of the project will be spent in a primary school doing practical work, teaching health, sport and music. 

Week two will see them running a youth camp at Maranatha Secondary School for 200 to 250 young people from all over Uganda. 

Some of the money raised will go towards essential resources needed to carry out the work throughout the fortnight but most of it will be used to accommodate and feed the many young people attending the camp.
