 Fund Raising News :: December 2015 

It has been a busy autumn of fund raising for the Trustees and supporters of The Uphill Trust. In January 2016 work will begin on the new school - with good quality latrines being the first priority (more on that later...)

Funding to begin the new school has come from two major sources:
1. The pupils of Dollar Academy in Scotland undertook a whole school sponsored walk through the Ochil Hills in September, with The Uphill Trust being one of their nominated charities
With our share of the funds will be be able to build the first classroom
2. Retired paralympian Danny Furey undertook a successful 10 km sponsored wheelchair run through the streets of Dundee in October which raised over £1500 for The Uphill Trust 
Danny's funds will be used to build the new latrine block
