Rugby players have given African children a trip of a lifetime.

Braintree Rugby Club raised £20,000 to bring the 18 youngsters from Lesotho to Braintree for a ten-day visit.

With the help of rugby charity Tour Aid, they organised trips to places including Cineworld Braintree and 10 Downing Street, coaching with Saracens Rugby Club and a visit to Oxford's Kassam Stadium, where they met Welsh player Gavin Henson.
