Robbie Savage in Kilimanjaro trek

18th Mar 2013

Former footballer Robbie Savage will climb Mount Kilimanjaro as part of a charity trek.

The BBC Radio 5 live pundit, who played for clubs including Blackburn in his playing days, is participating in the climb to raise money for the Responsible Gambling Trust and a programme to aid students in Kenya.

Other beneficiaries of the October expedition to Africa are the Mayfield and Ellastone First Responder Group, Haven House Children's Hospice in Essex, Prostate Cancer UK, Rays of Sunshine Children's Charity and the William Hill Project Africa.

Savage will take part in the expedition on behalf of the William Hill Project Africa, which supports Kenya's Island Primary School. The school teaches more than 300 children who are of primary school age as well as older kids who didn't have a chance to go to school when they were younger.

Savage said: "I'm delighted to be participating in the Responsible Gambling Trust's Kilimanjaro expedition as part of the William Hill team. I can't wait to take on this challenge and very much hope that, through my involvement, this event will raise considerable funds for the Responsible Gambling Trust and William Hill Project Africa."
