Collection to help rebuild China school.

YOUNGSTERS are organising a fundraising event to help rebuild a primary school in the remote area of Giuzhou province in China.

The Pingzhai Primary school was built in 1984 by the villagers, using whatever materials they could find but 27 years on, it is no longer safe for use. The school has been badly eroded by the elements and poses a structural danger to students and teachers.

WaiLo Li, communications officer for JaguarLandRover, has been working with Oxfam Hong Kong to coordinate the fundraiser event with Project TOM volunteers.

Collections takes place on August 28 at Wing Yip Supermarkets in Nechells, Birmingham Chinatown, The Arcadian Centre and Birmingham Chinese Evangelical Church. She said; "It's fantastically rewarding that we could do something tangible to help the kids in Pingzhai village - it's amazing small change can make so much difference to their lives."
