#ColUinAfrica 2017 - Nakuru, Kenya
In April 2017 Boots2Africa were privileged to visit the Walk Centre School in Nakuri, Kenya with Colchester United's Football in the Community team and African Adventures. In a week of activity we helped decorate their 'Big Build' school block, taught the children basic English and Maths in the classrooms and with COLU FITC coaches Ben Elmer and Tom Tayler delivered their first ever football coaching session.
With donations from children in Essex, Suffolk and Hertfordshire we sized and fitted 160 pairs of pre-loved football boots and Astros and over 350 other items of football kit. Such an inspirational week, we look forward to continuing our support for the children at the Walk Centre School
With football a core theme of Boots2Africa's mission we also had the opportunity to play a match against a local side, 'Community 08 FC'. The FITC 'Wanderers' with a strong and experienced back 4 and Development Squad player Toby Finch in midfield beat the '08' 1 - 0 in a match over 60 mnute of hot Kenyan Sunshine on a less than ideal playing surface. We'll be continuing to support 'Community' 08 FC' with supplies of Boots2Africa and kits
