West Ham United fans are invited to volunteer on a trip to Africa to provide support in schools.

West Ham United Community Sports Trust has teamed with the club’s African Adventures squad to offer fans the opportunity to go to south-west Kenya for ten days and help schools in the city of Nakuru.

The trip, from May 26 to June 6, aims to raise £25,000 for the trust with roles ranging from teaching in schools and working with underprivileged children, to football and multi-sports training.

Volunteers will also go on an adventure day with a visit to the Rift Valley midday through the trip.

Dan Mew, UK Development Manager at African Adventures, said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with the Trust, to continue to honour our Community Development Pledge, which provides resources and micro-finance to all the projects it supports.

“Most of all, Hammers fans have a rare and precious chance to positively engage with upward of 1000 children who live in extreme poverty.”

A presentation to explain the tour will take place on Monday, October 14, at the Boleyn Ground, Green Street.
