#AlbionCares in Kenya

4 April 2017

Supporters head to Africa for sixth visit

SIX Baggies fans are off to Africa to prove that #AlbionCares stretches beyond The Hawthorns.

The volunteers will be heading out to Nakuru in central Kenya on behalf of the Albion Foundation where they will take part in teaching and construction projects.

The Foundation made their first visit to what has become one of the Club’s more distant footballing outposts in May 2014 and this will be their sixth visit so far in helping to spread the Baggies gospel.

Sallyann Wright, Sallyann Edwards, Paula Burns, Neil Burns, Andrea Walters and Sheriden Rhodes have helped to pay for the trip through their own fund-raising efforts, further proof that #AlbionCares knows no boundaries.

All this week, we are highlighting the Foundation-led #AlbionCares initiatives of which the Kenya visit is just the latest in a long line of community-inspired projects both at home and abroad.

The week will continue with a marathon sponsored cycle ride led by 'Super Bob' Taylor, Brendon Batson and 'Blind Dave' Healey and a ticket giveaway to service personnel and care workers.

And don’t forget Jonas Olsson’s kit amnesty as our fans' favourite asks Baggies supporters to bring unwanted children's kit to collection points at The Hawthorns to be taken out to the school in Delhi for which he has launched his own Foundation.

On Saturday, we will build up to the Southampton game with a series of special events, sponsored by London Midland, to climax our #AlbionCares initiative.
