bandv are proud to be able to offer a place on the Saints Supporters Tour to Lesotho in partnership with Kick4Life and the Saints Foundation.

The tour is a 10 day trip to Lesotho with the chance to play in Saints kit, representing the club in Africa. You’ll also be trained to deliver health education to children in local schools, visit cultural & historical sites and enjoy an adventure trip to the beautiful mountain region. A truly life changing experience that would normally require a minimum of £2500 of fundraising to join!

Kick4Life is a charity operating in Lesotho, a country landlocked by South Africa. By making a simple £5 donation, you could be joining the Saints Foundation tour to Lesotho, from 9th-19th November 2014. For more information including a tour itinerary please download the tour information pack here.

About Lesotho

Lesotho is a beautiful country with a rich history and culture. It also has the world’s third highest prevalence of HIV (23.6%) and more than 130,000 children have been orphaned. This has had a devastating impact on family and community structures, and has dramatically held back the country’s economic development. We aim to utilize the great passion for football in Lesotho to address these issues, helping young people to stay healthy, achieve their potential and contribute to the sustainable development of their country.


bandv Business Development Director, Ross Breckenridge went on the trip in 2013 and couldn't recommend it highly enough, saying:
