AN adventurous Bishop Burton College pupil has joined a group of fellow East Yorkshire 11-year-olds on a charity expedition to Canada.

Dan Allday, 11, from Walkington has spent four weeks in Ottowa, Canada at a Summer Camp organised by world-wide children’s charity C.I.S.V which gives young people the chance mix with children from diffrent cultures.

Dan was one of four members of the Hull and East Riding branch of C.I.S.V led by Holly Illingworth 22, to attend the camp, meeting children from 12 different countries to learn about cultural differences and similarities through sports, games crafts and songs.

Dan’s father and C.I.S.V committee member, Nick Allday said: “They ultimately come away having forged some amazing friendships with children as far away as Mexico, China and Ecuador, often which last for a very long time.”

The Hull-based charity meets monthly, offering opportunities for all ages. Anyone interested in joining please contact Nick on 0754088057
