A Hadfield couple helped to build a school in Africa after seeing the lack of educational resources the children had access to.

Buxton Rotarians recently heard how while on holiday in Kenya in 2001, Margaret and Geoffrey Trimby visited a poor village school at which the 35 children sat on the earth floor with no electricity, water or sanitation.

They have since managed to raise more than £60,000 for the Neema School, in Kikambala, which now has electricity, water, sanitation, as well as five classrooms, five teachers and 200 children receiving free education.
