Leading discount retailer, The Works, has helped two Birmingham University students with their voluntary work in Africa, by donating craft supplies.
Adventure Tourism students Zowie and Josh were provided with a selection of art and crafts materials by the Sutton Coldfield based retailer to use during their recent volunteering trip to Zambia.
The pair travelled to Mukuni village in Zambia as part of their involvement with ZJ Voluntary, an organisation which works to provide recreational and educational activities to children in rural Africa.
Zowie, said: “We’re really grateful to The Works for the generous donation of the materials. It was fantastic to see these kids get involved with an activity they’ve never done before, and it allowed them to express their creativity in addition to their normal teaching classes.”
Kevin Keaney, chief executive of The Works, said: “Education, creativity and expression are important for children when growing up, both in the UK and beyond.
“We’re really pleased to have been able to help with ZJ Voluntary’s project and hope we will be able to do so again in the future.”
