Josh and Zac are now on a mission to raise as much as possible to support as many children as they can to get an education. Inspired by receiving a pair of bright yellow laces after becoming ‘Man of the Match’ at a recent rugby game, Josh suggested to his mum that they could design Time to Shine branded laces to be sold at local schools, at his sports club, to friends, family and other sports groups.
They want to bring together all the children going on the Zaare Challenge to create a Time to Shine day in their local area, where children and sports clubs will be encouraged to wear their branded laces to collectively support more children in Ghana to go to school.
Thanks to UK Aid Match, all public donations that the boys secure towards AfriKids' Time to Shine appeal before 4 March will be doubled by the UK government. You can find out more about the appeal at www.afrikids.org/shine.
We’ll make sure to keep you posted on how they get on! To support their efforts, please visit their fundraising page here. Thank you Josh and Zac, you are two bright shining lights for the Time to Shine appeal.
