School football kits delivered to the Sanata Restart Centre in Gilgil, Kenya

Thursday 28 November 2013

Steve Biggins, Master in Charge of Football, received a letter this week from Wing Commander Neil Hope MBE, thanking him for the School’s donations of football kit to his Taking Football to Africa and Beyond Appeal, which he runs in collaboration with the RAF Football Association. The kits have been delivered to the Sanata Restart Centre which cares for and educates orphans and streetchildren from the town of Gilgil, Kenya. 

Members of the School’s Hunt spent a day at the Restart Centre during the October half-term exeat, taking with them other donations from the Salopian community which were warmly and gratefully received. As Peter Middleton described in his report on the Hunt’s East Africa tour (see RSSH Tour to East Africa, October 2013) the opportunity to see the inspiring work that goes on there left a deep and lasting impression on the entire tour party.
