Solar lights, WAPIs, photos and letters begin their journey!

Today I’m taking the following to London to pass on to Ryan O’Byrne who is travelling out to Uganda in a few days time:
* 2 Solar lights
* 10 WAPIs (Water Pasteurisation Indicators)
* 2 Handbags
* 1 Hand-crafted toy
* Several hand-written letters
* Lots of photographs of Forms at Great Sankey High School and other supporters.
In our increasingly virtual world there is something very special about the physical and material.

Update: It was wonderful to meet Ryan and hand over the letters, photos and other items.

Update on 31st July 2013: Okenggo John sent a message to say that Ryan and Marie made it to Kampala and the items were handed over safely.

60-mile walk for AREP: Holyhead to Puffin Island

Decided to walk the 60 miles from Holyhead to Puffin island this summer.
Raising money for school fees for Term 3.

It’s a big term for the project since Lovemore and Scovia are about to sit their Primary Leaving Exams.  Also, Sonia, Esther and Richard will be taking their S4 (GCSE-equivalent) exams.

This donate button takes you to the donations page on give.net.
Anonymous gifts can be made, and donations can be gift-aided.
Thanks everyone for your support this year!

The pictures were below were taken last year on part of the route I’ll be walking.  It is a wild (in parts) and very beautiful coastline.
