Schoolboy helps out abroad with support from Community

Community - 3rd December 2018

“These type of character building experiences are an important part of the journey of life…”

A young schoolboy is about to embark on the journey of a lifetime with support from the trade union Community.

Community London’s Regional Charity Fund were able to donate £200.00 to Local School boy Finn Thompson towards the cost of a week in Kenya taking part in charity work with his school’s Kenyan partner school, Mogonjet.

Whilst on the trip Finn will have the opportunity to experience the Kenyan culture and work closely with young children who are much less fortunate than himself. He will be engaging in a number of activities such as teaching lessons  and community walks.

Speaking after the cheque, Regional Secretary for Community London Adrian Axtell said “These type of character building experiences are an important part of the journey of life, but aren’t always readily available due to funding.

“It’s great that we are able to support Finn with this, and look forward to hearing about the difference he will make across the globe upon his return.”
