Alford Academy teacher Mr Joel Sande returned to his former school, Kabamba Primary, in Serenje, Zambia, with a gift of books and stationery donated by the staff and pupils of Alford Academy.
The books were to be used by children in the newly-built pre-school base.
On receiving the books and stationery, the headteacher, Mrs Mbewe, thanked the staff and pupils at Alford for the gesture and said she was amazed at the number and variety of the books donated.
She promised the books would go a long way to help with the reading skills of not just the pre-school children, but also the older pupils at Kabamba Primary School. Mr Sande has fond memories of his time at Kabamba.
