A Book Bus volunteer’s story…Crocodile attack!

Posted by / in Africa, Blog, Featured Posts, Traveller's Tales /

Joseph Dax, an A Level student at Tavistock College was so inspired by our article in the last Winter Issue of Moor Links about local charity Book Bus, that he duly volunteered and headed off for two weeks this summer to Zambia to play his part in encouraging local children to get reading. On his return he kindly put this article together to tell us of his memorable experience.

Have you ever been attacked by a crocodile? My trip to Livingstone, Zambia as a Book Bus volunteer left me with a very lasting impression!  Camping in the grounds of ‘Grubby’s Grotto’, an old colonial residence, myself and the other volunteers set off early each morning, trundling down winding dusty roads and tracks in the trusty (but rather bumpy) Book Bus.

As well as being a key cog in the wheel at Venture Co, David is Chairman and Trustee of the Book Bus, an organisation very close to our hearts.  This week is National Volunteers Week and Dave and the Book Bus team have put together a few forwards about the importance of volunteers in making the Book Bus child literacy programme the success it is. They couldn’t do it without you, so THANKS!
