Peugeot Ireland sponsors Lyndsey Davey Africa climate aid trip

Peugeot Ireland is to sponsor former Dublin Senior footballer Lyndsey Davey on her trip to Kenya as part of the Plant the Planet Games on November 17.

Davey will be one of 50 inter-county players, past and present, who will travel to Kenya on November 17 as part of the Warriors for Humanity group who will take part in the Plant the Planet Games. The players have raised hundreds of thousands of Euro as they aim to plant trees to tackle the devastating effects of climate change and raise awareness of the work of Self Help Africa.

The visit will see the athletes take part in Gaelic Football & Hurling Exhibition Matches, a soccer match against AFC Leopards as well as cultural and agricultural engagements.

This is the second year of the Plant the Planet Games, the brainchild of Warriors for Humanity CEO and Founder Alan Kerins. Last year, over €500,000 was raised by inter-county players in support of the event, with one million trees being planted to tackle the effects of climate change.

Des Cannon, Managing Director at Peugeot Ireland says “We are proud to support Lyndsey on this special trip that will contribute so much to the important work done by Self Help Africa. As official partners to Dublin GAA, it is nice to be able to support a former player in their post playing career endeavours”.

Lyndsey made her senior debut in 2004 aged just 14, only retiring last year.  She went on to win 5 All-Ireland Titles, 12 Leinster titles and 5 All-Star Awards. She works as a Firefighter and Paramedic at Dublin Airport.
