COMMUNITY CORNER: Trust prepare for Zambia trip

The countdown has begun to Swindon Town Football in the Community Trust’s fourth visit to Zambia.

This year’s trip to Livingstone will take place in May and has had a fantastic boost with news that the Trust have been successful in securing funding from npower and the Football League Trust to develop and further enhance the existing partnership.

With the generous support of Cricklade-based charity Lights for Learning, the newly-trained staff will install solar panel lighting to a village school in the Zambian bush, enabling them to have village lighting for the first time.

This addition to the trip will mean that the school will be able to stay open during the hours of darkness helping the children to get an education.
