Mayo Ladies Gaelic Players, Lisa Cafferkey, Fiona McHale and Danielle Caldwell will be travelling to Kenya on November 17th to take part in the Warriors for Humanity Plant the Planet Games in Aid of Self Help Africa.

They will be joining a group of over 50 Irish Gaelic Games inter-county stars with the goal of leaving a lasting legacy by planting one million trees.

This will ensure a lasting change for future generations in Kenya. During the trip, they will begin the planting campaign and visit key projects.

Lisa, Fiona and Danielle are targeting to raise a total of €10,000 each which equates to 12,500 trees being planted.

This will make a lifelong difference by providing a source of food, income, shelter and improved soil for hundreds of African families, as well as removing up to 312 tonnes of carbon from the atmosphere every year.

Through this launch, the three inter-county players are hoping to raise awareness around this fundraising campaign.

Michael D. McAndrew attended the launch and began by speaking to Lisa Cafferkey.

Fiona McHale says she is delighted to be part of the trip.

Danielle Caldwell picked up another All-Star nomination this month. The Castlebar Mitchels player spoke to Michael D about that as well as looking forward to the trip to Kenya.

Former Galway Dual star Alan Kerins gave more details about how this trip originally began.
