A MID Cheshire’s sports coaching company have had their hopes of turning international dashed.
Multiflex, run by Mark Webb and founder Tom Davies, was due to fly to Kenya in March to work with primary schoolchildren.
But the violence following the country’s elections meant they had to abandon the two week trip.
Mark, 28, said: “The school we were going to has shut down. All the kids are from different tribes and they are right in the middle of it all.
“We are hoping it is merely a postponement, but it will be 12 months at least before it is back on again.”
Tom, 60, a former Northwich mayor, founded T and R Development with friend Ron Newton, bringing coaching and sports stars to Cheshire schools.
Tom said: “It is a beautiful country and it is sad we cannot go.”
Tom’s daughter, former Cheshire hurdles champion, Nicola, is hoping to arrange a visit from Multiflex coaches to Egypt, where she now lives.
