He won’t have his feet up, although sky Sports presenter David Jones is currently making the most of an global break in the Premier League season.
Instead, three scenic marathons will climb in 3 days to School Aid India, climbing over 2,000 feet per day – taking in parts of the Cleveland Way and the North Yorkshire Moors – scaling Ben Nevis’ equivalent twice.
School Aid India – setup by Jones’ mom Helen – provides education for children in Darjeeling, in the Indian Himalayas. Through fund raising she didn’t erect a new school building which is currently filled with children that are desperate to find out, day, some walking miles and night to get an instruction their households never dreamed was possible.
Not a cent comes from the authorities; all of the teaching, resources, books, and even computers, are offered by the charity, however, the outcomes are phenomenal.
Roseberry School – named where Jones grew up, following the strange hill Roseberry Topping that sits across the North Yorkshire village – homes 140 children in seven school years, supplying them with an instruction and their families from the poverty trap.
Jones stated:”It is an amazing success story but its own survival depends entirely on donations – School Aid India is run by volunteers including my mum – and every single cent goes straight to the school.
“Think about it like that:
#20 would give a school uniform to one child which will fill them with pride,
# 50 would provide a Wide Selection of books to one class
#2250 would cover a teacher’s salary for the whole calendar year.”
The charity has successfully finished the now, and build of some new school wing to kit out the building they’re looking for a costed #7,590 to offer new novels, furniture, an IT center, musical instruments, sports equipment and other resources.
