He will not have his feet up, although sky Sports presenter David Jones is currently making the most of an global fracture in the Premier League season.
Instead, three hilly marathons will climb climbing over 2,000 feet per day – shooting in parts of the Cleveland Way and the North Yorkshire Moors – Ben Nevis’ equivalent twice.
School Aid India – setup by Jones’ mother Helen – provides instruction for underprivileged children in Darjeeling. Through fund raising alone she helped to erect a new college building that’s now full of kids that are desperate to understand, some walking miles and night to get an instruction their families never dreamed was possible.
Not a penny comes in the Indian authorities; all of the teaching, resources, books, and even computers, are all supplied from the charity, however, the results have been phenomenal.
Roseberry School – appointed in which Jones grew up, following the strange hill Roseberry Topping which sits across the North Yorkshire village – homes 140 kids in seven decades, supplying their families out of their poverty trap and an education to lift them to them.
Jones said:”It is an amazing success story but its survival is based entirely on donations – School Aid India is conducted by volunteers such as my mum – and every single penny goes straight to the faculty.
“Think of it like that:
#20 would provide a school uniform to 1 child which would fill them
One course would be supplied by # 50 with a Wide Variety of books
#2250 would pay a teacher’s salary for the whole year.”
The charity has successfully finished the build of some new school wing, and to kit out the construction they are seeking a costed #7,590 to provide new books furniture, an IT facility, musical instruments, sports equipment and other essential tools.
