The 2015 Uganda Team met for the first time last week. It is a team of 26 students, the biggest single year team since 2008. The large number in this team is mostly due to the success of the UJC last year, something that we are delighted about. The team are keen to get started with their first bricking training next Tuesday.
Can we have this to 10th July 2015. Probably around 230 days.
It is around £3,500 already.
