Fundraising Opportunities

A Brownie Group Helps Kenyan Kids!
The 2nd Shenfield Brownie group in  Essex, has come up with a unique way to raise funds for children in Kenya - by collecting and selling textiles and clothes through the organisation Bag2School! In 2011 the group raised a massive £813! This makes a big difference to the lives of our Kenyan kids - many thanks to you all!

Colin's Cycle Ride Raises £2,000!
A grandfather, 72-year-old Colin Gibbs from Yeovil, cycled nearly 900 miles from John O’ Groats to Lands End in just over fourteen days in aid of Hope for Kids International! Colin said: “I’m not quite old enough to hang up my cycle clips yet! Cycling is a great way of keeping fit and is a great adventure! This is for a worthy cause - I know that Hope for Kids is helping people in South Sudan which, like many parts of Africa at the moment, is a very difficult place to be a child. We have so much and they have so little; I want to help these kids have life."

Colin helped to raise nearly £2000, which is an amazing blessing. This will be used to support five projects working with vulnerable children: famine relief in Kenya, gypsy children in south Lebanon, street children in South Sudan, earthquake orphans in Haiti, and education for children in Peru.

Fun Event Raises Vital Funds for Education!
This summer the CPAS Venture at Whitby came up with a novel idea to raise money for Hope for Kids - called 'Gunge the Leader'! The young people and leaders all made donations to decide which leader should be 'gunged' - and £430 was raised as a result! The money will be used to provide a quality education to young people in Lebanon. A very big THANK YOU is due to everyone that participated in this event!

Pamela's Run Helps Provide Education in Lebanon
Many thanks to Pamela Dickey who recently ran the Lisburn Half Marathon (with her dad) and raised more than £200 in sponsorship for Hope for Kids International. This will be used to provide quality high school and advanced education programmes to our older children in Lebanon. Thanks so much, Pamela!

Joyce's Book is Helping to Save Lives in Kenya
Yeovil writer Joyce Passmore donated proceeds from the sale of her recent book, The Light in My Mind, to help pay for medical equipment at the Kids Alive Kenya Children’s Centre at Karundas, Central Kenya. As a result, an autoclave - a specialized ‘pressure cooker’ using high pressure, high temperature steam to sterilise medical equipment and materials - now resides in the medical clinic at Karundas, along with a birthing couch, a portable microscope and new medicines. We and the clinic's staff and patients express our sincere thanks to Joyce for her generous support that enabled the purchase of these items – and to other UK supporters that have also assisted with the purchase of other equipment and medicines through Hope for Kids International. Thank you, all! You can purchase a copy of Joyce's book on Amazon - including a Kindle edition - or by contacting her at The GateWay, Addlewell Lane, Yeovil, Somerset, BA20 1QN, Tel +44 (0)1935 433146.
