8:01am Monday 18th March 2013 in News
A GROUP of young people from York who visited East Africa with TV pundit Rob Walker were reunited with the sports commentator at the new City of York Council HQ, West Offices.
During the 12-day trip, the group got involved with local communities by organising a fun run, painting schools, volunteering in an orphanage and even going on safari.
Rob said: “The whole county should be very proud of what these young Yorkshiremen and women have achieved.
“There are still thousands of great youngsters out there with solid values and a desire to help others.
“The six I took to Kenya and Uganda are a shining example of that.”
Kersten England, chief executive of City of York Council, said: “We are delighted that we can support this amazing event and that it is taking place at our new offices.”
