A YOUNG Mirfield woman is to help Bolivian children who have been orphaned, neglected or abused.

Sue France, 24, is heading to South America on May 5, to work for three months in a children's home.

She has volunteered for an organisation called i-to-i.

Huddersfield members of the Catenians Association Catholic organisation gave her £500 towards the £2,000 costs of the trip.

Sue said: "I'll be working with newly -born children or orphans."

She has put her career as a marketing executive with UCI Cinemas on hold to take up the challenge.

Her duties will include teaching English to 50 youngsters aged up to 11.

Anyone who would like to help Sue with the trip - including helping her improve her Spanish - can e-mail her at france_sue @hotmail.com
