Wycombe Wanderers Sports & Education Trust, in partnership with High Wycombe based Toolshed, are excited to announce that in January 2018 a combined group of 14 representatives from both organisations will be travelling to The Gambia, a small West African country, on a charitable expedition.
WWSET, the charitable arm of Wycombe Wanderers FC, and Toolshed, who offer construction-related training and qualifications as well as personal development coaching to local 16-24-year-olds who are not in employment, education or training, hope to achieve numerous positive outcomes from the trip:
Lots of the work planned to take place during the trip will be undertaken in partnership with the Mojo Foundation, a not-for-profit construction company based in the Gambia, who, like Toolshed, are managed by New Meaning, a UK based social enterprise organisation.
The trip to The Gambia has also captured the interest of highly acclaimed and BAFTA nominee film producer Lex Beckett (Squashed Robot Films) who will be travelling with the group to make a documentary of everything that happens.
In the run up to the trip both the WWSET and Toolshed representatives will be undertaking joint fundraising initiatives to generate money to cover the travel costs, and are already in training to complete a mammoth 100km sponsored walk in early September.
