Highlight of the trip
We had with a game of football. Our average age was about 55 theirs about 10. Julian was our captain, Xani their manager. Our captains instructions were "let them win by a goal". At half time we were 3-0 down! Playing in sand was a new experience for most of our players. However Roger Allen needs to be penalised at least 5 seconds for missing our best opportunity, about 3ft in front of their goal. I think we lost by 5 or 6. But what a game as we tumbled in the sand the kids laughed and laughed.
We donated books, pens and fillers, kindly donated by H&H. The crews had a whip round which will provide the school with vital resources and before leaving we were sung a song.
Julian and I both drove down the road in silence (for a change). It was a fantastic visit which we will always remember.
