Sponsored Walk - by Hilary Gray , Holy Family church

sponsored-walk

Back in March, my sister Clare came up with the fantastic idea of doing a sponsored walk to raise funds for the volunteer house at Karibu Nyumbani. I had to get fit , as her idea of a fun holiday is to climb up mountains in the Himalayas . I feel blessed having this time to enjoy the beautiful countryside that God has created. 

A young person ,Christina, from our parish also joined us for the walk. Our walk took place on Saturday May 27th. We woke up on the morning of the walk to a thunderstorm. Thankfully  by the time we reached our start point, it had stopped raining, although that didn't stop us getting our wet feet! 

 

Our 25 walk started at Alresford and finished in Farnham , following the St Swithun's way. Christina unfortunately got a migraine and had to leave us half way. The sun cam out in the afternoon, although didn't help dry my feet at all. We had a few tricky bits in the walk, trying to follow the route and did a dance and a shrill ululation, African style every time we managed to find a way marker. 

We arrived at the Royal Oak pub after 10 hours of walking, and after a shower and soak of feet were able to enjoy a well deserved glass of wine. 

 

Thank you to all who donated on our page on line. http://www.goldengiving.com/f/taking-steps-for-Karibu-Nyumbani where we have managed to raised over £4900 , and to our parish who  raised £400 in cash, and kept us in their prayers. 

I would also like to thank the family and friends of Royston Dorsa, for all their donations. Royston sadly died in a tragic accident in Dar es Salaam before he was able to join Karibu Nyumbani as a volunteer and share all his amazing talents. R.I.P Royston. 

The volunteers house is going to be named in his memory
