CARING teachers are raising cash to build a classroom.

The group of 12, from Horndean and Westbourne, want to raise enough for the facility in Nakuru, Kenya.

All of them will abseil from the Spinnaker Tower tomorrow between 10.30am and 11am.

Nicci Williams, from the group, said: ‘We built one classroom last year and we’re hoping with the extra money we can build the next one.’
