A Marathon Adventure For Warrington's Matt Hutson




A Marathon Adventure For Warrington's Matt Hutson

A Warrington-man is setting off on an exciting expedition this month that will see him undertake voluntary work in Ghana with the ICS volunteering scheme.
 
Matt Hutson (pictured) who hails from Warrington and was formerly a student at The Manchester Grammar School (MGS) will move to Ghana on 26th April.
 
There, he’ll spend three months in the rural village of Abrobiano on the country’s southern coast, educating local children on the issues of health and sanitation as well as helping teenagers understand their sexual health – something spurred on by the country’s rising HIV diagnoses. 
 
Before he undertakes the challenge however, Matt is running the Valiants Half Marathon to help raise £800 towards the charity he’ll be helping in Ghana. He explained: “We are asked to demonstrate our commitment before we leave and I have chosen to run a marathon to raise funds before I set off. It’s going to be tough, but demonstrates just how serious I am about the even bigger challenge that awaits in Ghana.
 
“I would like to thank everyone who has already supported my fundraising endeavours – especially my old school MGS who are promoting my efforts to past and present pupils.”
 
Matt’s commitment to volunteering won’t end there, when he returns from Ghana later in the year he will also take part in an ‘Action at Home’ scheme where he’ll share his African experiences with the wider Warrington community. He continued: “I am so excited about what’s ahead and as much as I want to enjoy it when I’m there, it’ll be great to come home and share the experience and hopefully encourage more people to visit areas in need.”
 
Anyone wishing to sponsor Matt can do so by visiting: http://www.justgiving.com/Matt-Hutson. None of the money raised from Matt’s marathon efforts will fund his trip and will all go towards helping the local communities in Abrobiano.
