A Doncaster divorce lawyer is showing that charity can start at home and abroad as he called for support for a school project in Kenya.
Andrew Isaacs, of Andrew Isaacs Solicitors, has spent time working in a small village in Kenya to help finance and build a nursery school for young children.
Through his Official Partnership at Club Doncaster, Andrew has demonstrated his commitment to the local community, but he said that Kenya will always hold a special place in his heart.
He said: “Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am extremely proud of Doncaster and love living and working in the town as #doncasterisgreat.
“But after living in Africa for 13 years of my life - the majority of my childhood – I was keen to get out there and help with this worthwhile project.
“The people that are benefitting from the school are genuinely as poor as it is possible to be, and small amounts of money can make a huge difference.
“If we could get just five people donating £10 per month, that would be enough to educate another 12 children for a whole year.”
His link to Africa began when his family moved from Doncaster with Andrew aged just two, after his father took a job as a chief engineer in Port Apapa in Nigeria.
The family later moved to Kenya, where they stayed until Andrew was 15, before moving back to Doncaster.
Andrew Isaacs Solicitors joined Club Doncaster’s Official Partnership programme in the summer, driven by a desire to support his local team.
Jon Warburton, commercial manager at Club Doncaster, said Andrew Isaacs Solicitors was the perfect example of an organisation with philanthropic values at the core of its business.
He said: “There are so many different reasons why businesses choose to support the club, whether that be to raise profile, develop new business or simply to give something back.
“Andrew Isaacs Solicitors clearly has a strong commitment to community support, both home and away, and the ongoing commitment to Club Doncaster is massively appreciated.
“In terms of Andrew’s charitable interests in Africa, if anyone is interested in supporting the project we would urge them to get in touch for more information on what is no doubt an extremely worthy cause.”
