A TEAM of volunteers are swapping their day jobs to help a village in Uganda.
The group of 11 men from St James's Church, Meltham, will jet out to the African country at the beginning of March.
They will be in the village of Kyema for 10 days.
They are going to be working with local people to refurbish a nursery.
The nursery will get a kitchen, a toilet block and fence.
The group will also do some decorating and install electricity.
Lawyer Nigel Priestley, of Meltham, one of the organisers, said: "We will be doing bits of training for the people of the village as well and taking out some tools.
"The aim of the trip is not just to build physical structures, important though this is.
"It is vital this already excellent nursery, where the parents pay to send their children, should comply with all the regulations.
"It is about sharing skills. It is also about building on the relationships between them and us and new relationships with those we will be working with. It is also about developing an awareness of life in a very different country."
Each member of the team has paid their own costs of £850.
The trip is part of the Meltham Mustard Seed appeal. This was founded in 1988 and has already provided much-needed aid for Kyema.
