Sky Sports’ David Jones walking three marathons for School Aid India

He won’t have his feet up, although sky Sports presenter David Jones is taking advantage of an ancient international break in the Premier League season.
Rather, Jones will climb three marathons in 3 times for School Aid India, climbing over 2,000 feet per day – taking in portions of the Cleveland Way and the North Yorkshire Moors – the equivalent of climbing Ben Nevis .
School Aid India – set up by Jones’ mom Helen – provides education for underprivileged children in Darjeeling. Through fund raising she helped to erect a school building which is now full of children that are desperate to understand, day, a few miles and night to get an education their families was possible.
Not a cent comes out of the Indian authorities; sources all of the instruction, books, and even computers, are all supplied from the charity, however, the results have been extraordinary.
Roseberry School – named where Jones climbed up, after the unusual hill Roseberry Topping which sits over the North Yorkshire village – houses 140 children in seven decades, providing an education to lift them and their families out of their poverty trap to them.
Jones explained:”It is an incredible success story but its survival depends entirely on donations – School Aid India is run by volunteers like my mom – and each and every penny goes directly to the faculty.
“Think of it like that:
#20 would give a school uniform to 1 child which would fulfill them
#50 would provide 1 course with a Wide Variety of books
#2250 would cover a teacher’s wages for the whole calendar year.”
The charity has successfully finished the build of some new faculty wing, and now to kit out the building they are currently looking for a costed #7,590 to provide new books, furniture, an IT centre, musical instruments, sports equipment and other tools.
