A Worlingham teenager held her first fundraising event as she is set to spend a year teaching in India.
Amy Mallet, a sixth form student at Bungay High School, was picked from hundreds of applicants to travel 4,598 miles in late summer to volunteer with a primary school to help children develop their English language skills.
But the 17-year-old needs to raise £6,200 to fund her trip.
She recently held a neon themed zumba class at Bungay High School which raised £124.
Amy will begin her journey with an orientation session before joining a project in either southern India or one of the country’s northern states.
