The Albion Foundation has teamed up with African Adventures to offer supporters an opportunity of a lifetime, consisting of 7 days working with a variety of different community projects in developing areas of south-western Kenya.
From the 26th May 2014, a group of Foundation members of staff and West Bromwich Albion FC supporters will form the charity’s first-ever group trip to sub-Saharan Africa to help give something back to the international community, whilst enjoying a truly remarkable experience.
The trip is looking to raise an estimated £20,000 for The Albion Foundation, which will provide the registered charity (number 1081948) with substantial funds that will enable the Foundation to continue supporting local people in the local area.
There are a number of roles available including football coaching, building work, teaching in schools and community work with children. These roles will require dynamic, enthusiastic individuals to help us achieve our goal to improve the lives of people less fortunate than us.
Throughout the 7 days, supporters will be able to experience an incredible Rift Valley Adventure Day, a three-part adventure day comprising of a morning game drive in Lake Nakuru Safari Park, a stop off at the Earth’s equator and an adventure trail at Thomson Falls near Nyahururu.
In order to be able to take part in this incredible opportunity, individuals were asked to raise approximately £2,250 each in order to take part. The Foundation will be holding a number of fundraising events to help raise awareness of the trip and to assist participants raise the required amount. This included a charity Race Night (http://thealbionfoundation.co.uk/?p=16012) and a Fans Forum in Worcester (http://thealbionfoundation.co.uk/?p=15339).
