A Worle man has been honoured in Kenya in recognition of his dedicated charity work for the country.
Brian Humphreys, chairman of Kenya Hope Charity, has been made an honorary elder of the village of Ulumbi by representatives of the Kenyan government.
Brian has worked for 12 years with widows and orphans who are suffering from poverty.
The charity focuses on education as a way of overcoming poverty and has implemented a sponsorship programme similar to larger charities but with much lower costs.
