Next Wednesday our very own Beth jumps on a plane to Uganda with an unusual luggage, she will be taking a suitcase full of prosthetic legs, one of them specifically adapted for a young amputee that has been waiting a very long time for a leg. Beth works with Legs4Africa to recycle legs that cannot be reused in the UK.
As if this wasn’t enough, Beth is also taking 34 recycled Young Dragon Polo Shirts, some shorts, socks, stick bags and 10 hockey sticks. These are being taken to Youth Sport Uganda, an organisation that helps youngsters in Uganda to play hockey.
A video showing the inspirational man behind this venture can be seen here teaching youngsters to play hockey in a challenging environment!
We look forward to seeing our Ugandan Young Dragons enjoying themselves in their new kit!
Great work Beth!!
This project strengthens our links with our friends in Africa, just over 40 years ago, the club hosted the Zimbabwean Men’s National Team and two years ago had the pleasure of hosting a Zimbabwean Girls team at the Den.
