PUPILS have kicked off a fundraiser to help send equipment to an African school by holding a parent and teacher football tournament.

Staff at St Michael’s C of E Primary school in Rossington organised the tournament to raise money to buy equipment for the Lena Preparatory School in Kenya. The equipment will be delivered by teachers Tim Wilson and Kate Corcoran later in the month.

As part of the visit the pair will also carry out rennovation projects such as painting classrooms and laying foundations for a new building.

As well as the kickabout, the event had other fundraising activities running at the school in Sheep Bridge Lane, including food and drink stalls and games for pupils and parents.
