A great evening of entertainment next Friday – and all in a good cause…..

gittinsEveryone is invited to an ‘Evening of Entertainment’ being organised by a young entrepreneurial college student.

Jack Gittins, 14yrs, attends Enderby’s Brockington College. He has organised the event, being staged at the College from 7pm on Friday 22nd April, to help him raise funding in order to take part in the College’s ‘Kash 4 Kenya’ project.

Along with other students, Jack had the opportunity to take part in the project and travel to South Africa this July and after a series of interviews he was accepted. It was only then that the hard work began!

Kash 4 Kenya & South Africa (K4K&SA) is a fundraising initiative run in conjunction with Brockington College which has been helping to improve the lives of students in schools in Mtwapa (Kenya) and Johannesburg (South Africa) since 2010.

Bi-annual projects since 2010, have helped support the schools and the students by:

  • buying land and carrying out building work to provide a safe and practical learning environment for the student
  • supplying desks and benches, along with appropriate stationary and resources so students can advance their education as they desperately want to
  • purchasing mosquito nets to help but down the spread of malaria and provide a safe nights sleep
  • supplying food packages to those in real need
    installing water tanks

and much more

To take part each successful student has to raise £2000 to enable the trip to take place.
