A Sheffield man is setting off on a journey of a lifetime next week – to help transform a nursery in Africa.

Kevin Rhone is part of an eight-strong team from national property maintenance company Novus Property Solutions who will travel to South Africa.

The team will be taking part in an intensive refurbishment of the Busy Bees nursery in Cape Town, which is desperately in need of improvements.

The 33-year-old is a corporate social responsibility manager and will be using his skills to develop and implement a comprehensive makeover of the facility between Wednesday, February 11 and Thursday, February 19.

Kevin was handpicked by Novus Property Solutions’ board members to take part in the challenge after demonstrating outstanding commitment and performance in his role over the previous 12 months.

A host of businesses, including Plantool, LED Environmental and Cathedral Leasing, have supported Kevin in the build-up to this trip by donating valuable funds.

Kevin, who lives in the Crookes area, is looking forward to the experience.

He said: “This is a fantastic opportunity and I couldn’t be prouder to be going and using my experience to assist the nursery. The nursery has already identified a number of areas they’d like improving, so I’m just looking forward to getting out there now and making a difference.”

Novus Property Solutions has a long-standing commitment to responsible business practices and won the Santander Responsible Small Business of the Year Award 2014.
