A bride-to-be is embarking on an African adventure the same year she’s due to get married.

Lloyds Banking Group worker Robyn Union will be setting off to Kenya next June as part of the trip of a lifetime.

The 22-year-old will be raising funds for the Memusi foundation – a charity that provides education to third world children.

Robyn will be helping out at a Kenyan school, where she’ll work for a week providing activities for the African children as well as help.

The Golcar girl said she feels it will be a rewarding experience: “To us they’ve got nothing but that’s life as they know it and they’re really grateful for everything.

“I think it’s going to be rewarding but I think it’s going to be difficult. I think it’s going to be quite emotional in places.

“I’m getting married next year so money’s a little bit tight. I’m trying to do it through fundraising. My fiancé’s offered to get his chest waxed which I think he’s going to regret.”

Robyn will be kicking off her fundraising with a 14 mile Yorkshire Dales walk on Sunday, joined by her fiancé Paul Robertshaw. Donations can be made at
