Named after:

Dr David Livingstone
Was a Pioneer medical missionary, an explorer in Africa and one of the most popular British Heroes of the late 19th Century. He was born 19 March 1813, in Blantyre, South Lanarkshire Scotland, and trained in medicine and missionary work before moving to Africa in 1841. He crossed the continent from east to west and, on his journey, entered waters previously uncharted by Europeans, including the Zambezi River and Victoria Falls. He witnessed the horrors of the African slave trade, and returned to the region twice after his initial voyage. He died in Africa on an expedition in 1873 where he was attempting to find the source of the Nile. His body was returned to England and is buried in Westminster Abbey. He was quoted as saying “I vow to never stop until I have come to the end and achieved my purpose.

Motto:

‘Although no one can go back and make a brand new start. Anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending. 365 days,365 new chances'
