London marathon pace setter Shadrack Korir (no. 9 alongside Sir Mo Farah) helps me to support Kiboi Primary School, Kenya.

Shadrack with the holdall containing football kit he is taking home for the pupils of Kiboi Primary School.

I'm so grateful to London Marathon pace setter Shadrack Korir for agreeing to take a holdall full of football kit back to Kenya with him for the pupils of Kiboi Primary School.

I have been personally supporting this school since 2012 by providing sports equipment and clothing for the children, and I partner with Kenyan athlete's competing in England who take the donations back with them.

Shadrack ran alongside Sir Mo Farah pace setting for the elite British athletes during the London marathon and I met him at his hotel in Windsor 2 days before the race to hand him the holdall.

This support for the school children can not be continued without the generosity of the Kenyan athlete's including Jonah Chesum & Shadrack Korir agreeing to take the equipment home with them and I am so grateful to them.

Supporting Kiboi Primary School, Kenya

Next shipment ready to go!

Proudly wearing Oxford City FC kit for both pupils and teachers.

Putting the kit and footballs to good use!

I am very fortunate to be able to support the children of Kiboi Primary school, Kenya with another donation of sports equipment.

My link with the school came via a friendship I made with Kenyan athlete Jonah Chesum during my time working as part of the medical team at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Since 2012 I have provided football kit for the boys and girls (shown in the photo), sports equipment including balls, bibs and cones but today's package is one of fun equipment including frisbees, balls and skipping ropes to allow the children some much needed fun time playing outdoors!
