Through a link between the Trust and the founders of the Kokrobite Chiltern Centre in Ghana, 17 boys will be travelling to Accra in February 2016.
The group of boys, aged 12-13, have been fundraising for several months to raise funds to build a community football arena in the village of Kokrobite. Fundraising activities have included organising a Quiz Night for friends and family, taking part in sponsored cross country runs and bike rides, compiling and selling calendars, doing odd jobs, and selling unwanted items on Ebay.
While in Ghana, the boys will help with constructing the football arena. They will also spend a day in the village school, play football matches against local teams, visit Church, have a go at African drumming, and learn about the history of the slave trade in West Africa.
The Trust would like to thank Tildenet of Bristol for kindly supplying goal nets and mosquito nets to donate to Kokrobite.
