Off we go! 2013 School's team sets off

It was a sunny morning at St Andrews Church as the 2013 Link 4 Life Schools Team  set off on their journey to South Africa.  They were waved off by a throng of family members and friends - and by about 12 noon all the students were in the Cheslyn Hay Mini Bus being driven by Tony Archbold (thanks Tony).

The team will be flying from Heathrow tonight to Johannesburg and then traveling tomorrow morning by mini bus to hands at Work in Africa, near White River, Mpumalanga.  They will spend one night at the Hands at Work hub, before moving to accommodation near to the communities we are partnering with - Share,  a rural community in Bush Buck Ridge in the North east of South Africa.

Chris Burton from Hawkins Sports \Club passes on
some of the football kit to Dawn Allen from
Cheslyn Hay High School before she
leaves for South Africa
The team are taking donations of baby clothes for the Baby Bear Project  and also some donations of football kit, given by Hawkins Sports Club, Cheslyn Hay  (Many thanks for these)

If you would like to follow the group's activities then please keep up with the blog and a list of their schedule is available here Link 4 life teams Prayer & Info Sheet
