Staff do their bit to help in Ghana on an amazing African Adventure

27 March, 2018

FOLLOWING an incentive last November two lucky employees of Utility Alliance are helping build a school in Africa.

Alongside our partners, Burnley FC in the Community (BFCitC), Ryan Forth and Nathan Allen flew out to Ghana on Saturday with charity African Adventures. They will spend 8 days there experiencing the culture as well as providing a much needed helping hand with building work.

All the staff at Utility Alliance got involved with this trip by donating 100’s of items to be taken over to Ghana with the team as part of the Kit For Kids campaign including toiletries, stationary and fitness equipment.

Sadie Wise, PR & Marketing Assistant, said: “When our partners at Burnley FC in the Community approached us with the idea of sending some employees to Ghana for this amazing opportunity we immediately knew we wanted to get involved.

“Everyone was really keen to win this incentive and it’s great to see photos of Ryan and Nathan getting stuck in to the building work and enjoying themselves over there.

“We’d like to thank all of the staff at Utility Alliance again for their fantastic donation efforts which took place last week”.

Siobhan McNamara, Marketing & Events Manager at BFCitC said: “This is the third year we’ll be working with African Adventures and we are so pleased to be heading back to Woe with them and members of Utility Alliance!

“They work with hundreds of volunteers every year, including lots of sports trusts, so their experience and specialism is really valuable. Three years in, we now enjoy a well-established and meaningful relationship with the team”.

African Adventures is a volunteer travel organisation dedicated to improving lives. Their trips are said to be challenging, eye-opening  and extremely worthwhile.
