Fenland woman to relive trip to Africa with talk at March Town Hall
A FENLAND woman who volunteered in Malawi will relive the experiences of her trip at March Town Hall tonight.
Bryony Parkin, arts administrator at Fenland, spent 16 days in Africa in May and July as part of her Hospitality, Tourism and Leisure Management course at City College Norwich.
During her trip the group completed volunteer work, visited schools, nurseries, businesses and were presented with African traditions such as tribal dances and village life.
Bryony said: “Although our main aim was to train them in certain aspects of tourism, and this was successful, I think it’s safe to say we were the ones being educated.
“We were enlightened about the more simple areas of life; how to relax, be patient and to be more appreciative. I have come back a different person. If things go wrong I won’t worry now because I’m lucky and better off than many of the people I met on my travels.”
