Ryan Giggs and Chris Eagles both took time out of Manchester United’s pre-season tour of South Africa to see first-hand Unicef’s anti-Aids projects in the country.

The team’s partnership with the charity, United for Unicef, has so far raised £2 million for the cause.

Giggs and Eagles visited the Sonke Gender Justice project in Cape Town, where they spent the afternoon with a group of delighted young people and took part in workshops on how the country aims to prevent the disease.

Anyone looking for a destination where they can carry out their own charity work, for example on a gap year, could consider emulating the Manchester United players and booking flights to Cape Town.
