A Brandane who’s planning on undertaking what she’s described as ‘the chance of a lifetime’ is asking for the help from Bute residents or organisations.

Sharon Tritschler left Bute four years ago to make a life for herself and her daughters, and has just completed a degree in Education and Social Services at Strathclyde University.

She tells us: “I have been offered the chance of a lifetime along with a few other students to go and work in Tanzania.

“Through this I will be designing and delivering health and well being on issues surrounding drugs and alcohol awareness, sexual health awareness and basic first aid training which I will teach.”

The opportunity, which will count towards her honours year placement, will enable Sharon to research and gain an understanding of the environment and the issues surrounding Tanzanian local communities, and promote a sustainable environment by designing a plan on developing a City Mission to address current and future issues.
