STAFF at Slinfold Golf and Country Club are again putting their charity foot forward with The Weald School, Billingshurst, to help raise money for the school’s charity, Classrooms for Kenya.

Classrooms for Kenya was set up by The Weald School to help fund the rebuilding of schools in the Kitale region of Kenya, near the Ugandan boarder.

This year they aim to raise even more money to help send 82 staff and students from the school on their fourth trip to Kenya over the summer holiday period.

During their time there the staff and students will help to build additional classrooms and provide lessons for the people of Kenya.

To help with the fundraising Slinfold’s Head Therapist at the Retreat Spa, Skye Jaworski will be attending the school’s pamper evening on Friday April 1.

Skye will be waxing the legs of sixth form students Josh Moore and Max Dench, who will be part of the group heading out to Kenya this summer.

Josh and Max have been receiving numerous sponsors to have their legs waxed for this very worthy cause.

Andy McNiven, general manager at Slinfold Golf and Country Club, commented: “We are delighted to be able to help Classrooms for Kenya and The Weald School.

“This is a great opportunity for staff and students alike to experience the way of life in Kenya first hand as well as to help improve it by building a school.

“As we have seen in the recent Comic Relief charity campaign, there are a number of children in the country who want to learn but do not have the opportunity to do so.

“We hope that by helping The Weald School to raise the funds needed, more children in Africa will benefit from an education.”

Tickets for the pamper evening from 7-10pm at The Weald School are on sale now and available from the school’s reception.
