HELP A ROMANIAN SCHOOL. Shotton Hall Comprehensive School, Peterlee, County Durham, has been sending volunteers to Alba Iulia in Romania, twice a year since 1989. This summer, together with the ambulance service, the team aims to improve the English teaching classrooms in the town's secondary school and needs books, story tapes, videos, tape recorders, art and craft materials, paint and fabric plus travel costs and the loan of a minibus-sized vehicle.
