Stag night revellers chip in to help charity drive

22 Jun 2009

Stag parties might be looking to cut back during the credit crunch, but one group of revellers have agreed to spend big to help raise money for the Third World.

Groom Johnny Kirwan and his stag weekend pals will shell out more than £200 on numerous pairs of Havaiana flip-flops as part of an unusual fundraising attempt, the Grimsby Telegraph reports.

The group bought the flip-flops, which are made in Brazil, to help out a local charity which raises money to support poverty-stricken children and families in Kenya.

Co-founder of the charity Helen Perry said the "generous" stags had bought two pairs each, with every penny going towards essentials for villagers in the African nation.

Reveller Matthew McCourt added: "We are going to have to customise them in some way because when 40 lads are at the poolside and take off their flip-flops we are not going to know whose are whose."

"We have all been pleased to help," he stated.

While Magaluf might be a traditional stag night favourite, travel advice site TripAdvisor has revealed that more UK tourists are now taking trips to Turkey and other destinations where sterling is stronger against the local currency.ADNFCR-2122-ID-19228989-ADNFCR
