Lucketts Travel provided a complimentary coach to transport a group of year 11 pupils from King Richard School in Portsmouth to Heathrow airport, where they will embark on a life changing expedition to Nakuru, Kenya.
The group will be looking after orphaned children, teaching in schools, coaching sports sessions and building homes in Nakuru, which is the fourth largest town in a significantly deprived area.
Funds were raised for the trip through charity events such as car boots sales, car washes and bag packing. Lucketts Travel stepped in to help them on their way with the first leg of their journey.
Paul Barringer, sales director of Lucketts Travel, said: “Lucketts Travel is delighted to have helped make this opportunity of a lifetime a reality for King Richard School. Being a local, family owned business we are always keen to support local schools and we wish the pupils all the very best for the commendable trip they are undertaking.”
John Fullick, Director of Extended Schools, said: “On behalf of the pupils and the school, I’d like to thank Lucketts Travel for providing courtesy coach travel and transporting the children smoothly and safely on their way on this dream trip.”
