Donated Items – Mbazi and Bethel

Hi All, As some of you know we managed to take a lot of clothes and shoes out to Kenya this time. So one of the big jobs we have had was to distribute all of those items to people in the local area.LookAtOurNewClothes

We first took our heavy cases to Mbazi Community Group, who help children in the Gorafani area. When we got to the group there were only a few children there but this soon changed. We managed to give out lots and lots of items including a handful of Arsenal shirts to some extremely grateful children. In total we gave out 125 items to about 50 children.

TatuDressOn Friday we took the remaining items to Bethel Children’s Care Centre. We arrived in style with a number of cases stacked on the back of motorbikes; the only problem was that one ran out of petrol on the way! Never the less we made it at about 8:00am and started to distribute clothes to the 80 children who regularly attend. When we had finished kitting out almost all of the children with shoes and every single child with clothes we still had quite a lot left over, so we decided to see if they had any brothers and sisters who wanted anything. Some of the children ran home and the word soon spread. SmartVestWithin minutes of sending the children we had a large crowd forming. We brought small groups of children into the compound and gave them clothes, shoes or both. This carried on until about 3:30 in the afternoon. When we finally ran out about 200 children had received something, making our total this time about 250 children who have been touched by your donations.TomoImressedWithHisStyle

Arrived in Mtwapa

Hi All, We arrived in Mtwapa in the middle of the night on the 4th of September. Mtwapa was still awake and noisey as always!

We have been really busy over the last few days introducing Tomo, Faye and Helena to (almost) everyone. Over our first few days we have planning some extra tuition at Mtwapa Academy, helping out at Bethel Children's Care Centre and sorting out all the items we have to give out!

All is going very well here and they boys are performing really well as usual! We will put a bit more detailed information up over the coming days. Watch out for more updates over the next few days including millions of cute photos of Kenyan children!

Car Booty!

Hello everyone! We did a car boot at the A47 near hinckley this morning and managed to raise a whopping £150! Thanks to the kind people on the gate who let us in for free and the even kinder people who bought things from our stall or made a donation, it was a really lovely morning and we thoroughly enjoyed it!

We often receive lots of wonderful donations of clothes, books, toys or shoes and most of them find their way out to Kenya eventually, however the few which are too big, bulky, heavy or which are not quite fitting with the culture we keep stored up until we have enough things to do a car boot! The money we raise then goes directly back into the charity and helps another child to start school.

So thank-you so so so much to everyone who has donated items to us, and please dont stop! Everything is very gratefully received.

If you think you have anything to add to our horde or just met us at the car boot and want to get in touch please do leave a message on this news article, or send us an email to
