Once again this year Richard, along with his Footy4Fun and Reading Football Club Community Trust colleagues will be raising money to send a crate to Kenya in the summer of 2016. Richard and the team will travel to Kenya in 2017 to visit the projects and see the progression they have made.
They had a hugely successful trip in September 2014. They worked hard in Nairobi, in small poverty stricken areas on a number of projects within schools for children aged between 3 and 9.
Richard himself worked with a number of his colleagues at the Walk Centre School , teaching reading and writing skills.
James' project was working in a larger school, Destiny's School. There James and a group of colleagues helped to build a kitchen for the school.
A further group of the volunteers worked at Jubilee School. At this school they were running multi sports activites all week for the children.
Richard and all the volunteers that took the trip would like to say a huge thank you to all of you for all your support throughout the year, and for all the donations of clothing and shoes that were made, it has made a big difference to peoples lives.
