Inspirational Clevedon School students will embark on a trip to Kenya to support the work of a North Somerset charity.
Pupils will travel to Africa for Churchill-based charity Mend The Gap on a relief trip.
They aim to help individuals and communities to reduce the widening gap between cultures, races, generations and people of different wealth.
Knitted jumpers for nursery children will also be donated.
More than £500 has been raised to fund the trip through cake sales, donation boxes and a 10km run.
The money will help to buy supplies for primary schools, family necessities and staffing a nursery school.
Headteacher Jim Smith said: “This is a wonderful and life-changing trip.
