A young Leeds Rhinos fan has helped his favourite club make a difference the lives of hundreds of children in Africa. Teenager Ben Hill is a huge Rhinos fan and travels with his dad David to all the club’s games from his home in Shropshire. He attends The Thomas Adams School in Shropshire who have formed The Zest For Life Partnership with Miriu Mixed Secondary School and Innis Primary School in Kenya. When the school were looking for new ideas to help build the relationship with the Kenyan School, Ben thought his favourite team would be able to help out. He contacted the Rhinos Marketing Assistant Andrew Webster to see if the Champions could help and the club were able to provide a consignment of old replica shirts to dispatch to Africa. Dave Queen, a teacher from Thomas Adams School, commented, "The purple shirts were given to our successful school leavers at Miriu School in Western Kenya. "The blue and amber ones were given to much younger orphans in the widows and orphan centre run by 75 year old Consolata Muga on the upper Nyakach plateau. The shirts have gone to some very happy children," added Queen.
