Sports equipment arrives in Zambia

A group of children in Zambia are bouncing having received a lorry-load of sports equipment

A group of children in Zambia are bouncing having received a lorry-load of sports equipment from the Isle of Man.

The 'Sports Equipment for African Children Appeal' was launched in January last year, and the racquets, balls, hockey sticks and kits were picked up by the Zambian High Commissioner in June.

The organisation 'Sport in Action Zambia' has been responsible for distributing the equipment to children living in extreme poverty in rural villages, and local schools.
