On Saturday 5th November I fly out to Capetown to earn my eight stripe with Mellon Educate. From 2002 to 2013, 25,000 volunteers have built 25,000 homes to house 125,000 people.

I will join 270 other volunteers on what will be my eight building blitz to South Africa.This year we will be working on two schools in Khayelitsha, one of the biggest townships in Capetown.
