The Bambisanani Partnership this week appointed Andy Lockwood, Professional Development Manager at the University of Leeds, as a Trustee.
Andy became involved in the partnership in 2014 and visited South Africa in 2015 with students and staff from St. Mary’s School, Menston. Inspired by the visit, Andy wasted little time in organising a visit for students from the University of Leeds to South Africa to further develop the work of the Bambisanani Partnership. The visit, in June 2016, introduced a Leadership programme to over one hundred junior school children and pioneered a unique cycling programme (Cycling for Success) at Mnyakanya School. It was a resounding success.
Andy has worked tirelessly with the Bambisanani team over the past two years and has made a significant contribution to forging the partnership with the University. His personal commitment to fundraising has been amazing and last year he ran the 127 miles of the Leeds Liverpool canal route! Andy was clearly delighted with his appointment:
The Bambisanani Partnership is a multi-award winning charity which uses sport as a catalyst to promote education, health, global citizenship and leadership in one of South Africa’s most deprived rural areas. Andy Lockwood will join Founder Trustees David Geldart, Darren Beardsley, Katie Campbell, Barbara Pounder and Diane Maguire on the Board.
