Horncastle students are turning to the power of chocolate to help raise money for their 2020 expedition.

Following the success of last year’s event, Banovallum School will be holding a Chocolate Bingo on Friday, March 22.

They are hoping to match - or exceed - the £550 previously raised.

There will be hamper style prizes for the first correct line and full house per game.

A number of raffle prizes have also been donated by generous companies around the county, including Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre, Magna Vitae sports facilities, Fantasy Island, Play-Zone, David Lloyd Centre and the Co-op, to name but a few.

Any further contributions will be gratefully received.

The bingo session will start at 6.30pm, with doors open from 6pm. Entry is £4, including eight games of bingo.

Nationwide Student Uniform has sponsored the students with promotional T-Shirts which they will be wearing at fundraising events and when they head off to Morocco in July 2020.

During the expedition, they will take part in a four-day trek through the High Atlas Mountains, help with renovations at a deprived primary school and teach the children basic English and undertake a camel trek through the sand dunes and forests.

Each student has to raise £1,800 for the 14-day expedition.
