Three local men are getting ready for the Put Foot Rally, an epic adventure across Africa, to raise money for charity.

Kevin Lawrence, Angus Wingfield and Will Sergi will take part in an 8,000km rally across five African countries in 18 days. They will travel through South Africa, Nambia, Botswana, Zambia and Malawi.

During their trip, which will start on June 19, they will get involved with hands-on charity work with some of southern Africa’s poorest people and help raise money for disadvantaged young people more locally in East Sussex.

Kevin and Angus both run businesses near Eastbourne and Will is a member of the police force.

The purpose of the rally is to raise money for The Put Food Foundation, Odyssey Invictus and Wild Trails International. The Put Foot Foundation helps people in Africa and Odyssey Invictus champions life and work skills for young people locally. Both causes also provide funds and support for conservation in South Africa for some of the world’s most endangered species and rural community education.
