KIRKCALDY teenager Sandy Wallace has been busy raising funds for a trip to remember.

The 16-year-old has a target of £4000 to reach for his World Challenge to Tanzania in June of next year and thanks to series of fundraising activities, such as a race night at the St Clair Tavern and a concert at Rothes Halls, he’s well on the way.

Recently he bravely undertook a leg waxing at his school, Kirkcaldy High, which raised just over £200! Many of the staff and pupils helped out and beauty salon Studio 7 donated their time for free.

Sandy’s next event is a concert at the Adam Smith Theatre by the operatic group Ensemble. They have agreed to help Sandy reach his target by putting on a performance of vintage music on Friday, September 7.

So far Sandy has raised £3151 towards his trip and is hoping that the concert will help him reach his final figure.

He said: “I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who is making this World Challenge possible for me.”

If you would like tickets for the performance from Ensemble, contact Sandy on (01592) 563982. Tickets are priced £10 for adults or concessions are £8.
