A charity footgolf tournament is being held at Leen Valley Golf Club in a bid to send a young volunteer to Africa where they will help build a school.

The event on Saturday 14th March runs from 11am to 3pm, and is being organised by Lyndon Roberts, of the Derby County Community Trust. The trust travels to Kenya every year to support young people in the Nakuru region, and this year they will spend 14 days, between May 23rd and June 7th, helping to build a new school building and kitchen block.

Lyndon, who will run the Brighton Marathon in April 2015 as part of his fundraising campaign, said: “I hope to raise enough money to be able to provide the opportunity for a young, former homeless person, who has turned their life around, from Derby to travel to Kenya and take part in this life changing experience. They will be invited to attend, based on their attitude, commitment and engagement.”
