Mike Harris presents kit to African school

MIKE Harris spent a rest day after the first stages of the eight-day Enduro Africa ride for life helping to carry out improvements to a South African school.

And The New Saints' boss took time out from the gruelling charity motorcycle ride to present a TNS kit to Mgcawezulu Village School just south of Durban.
The ride is in aid of four African charities - UNICEF, Sentebale, The Princes' Fund for Lesotho, the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund and TouchAfrica.
The participants rode down to the school on dirt roads in the rain.
When they arrived, the building was in a sorry state and the tasks included roofing, wiring, carpeting, painting inside and out, making desks, making a jungle gym and moving the crèche out of their current windowless classroom into the nearly decorated one with new desks and toys.
Mike says the ride, across difficult terrain, has been extremely challenging and already some 10% of the original starters have dropped out.
