Running to Raise Money

On Thursday 28th April we will be running a continuous one hour relay race with 2 teams around the house at Karongwe Reserve in South Africa. Although the distance may not be that great; the heat will make it harder than you’d have thought with temperatures of around 30oC at the time of day when we will be doing it.

The money raised will be used to build a fence and a classroom at the creche in the local village; the Willows. Any money you donate would be greatly appreciated by both ourselves and the kids. The poor facilities at the current creche (a wooden hut) means that some families are taking their kids elsewhere; this means that the owner of the creche does not have sufficient funds to improve the facilities and also means families are travelling long distances to take their kids to a creche despite there being one on their doorstep. We have already started building a fence line to brighten up the creche and make it more safe for the kids when they are running around outside.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
