Restart 100km

Hello everyone,
 
On Sunday 28th November, we (Daisy Rex, Jemima Tollworthy, Ben Calow, Isla Logan, Jack Parry, Fintan Walsh, Charlie Eke, Annie Smith and our captain Sammie Likoko Koli) will be taking on the challenge of covering 100km each, by a combination of foot and bike, through Kenyas mighty Rift Valley, battling it's gruelling altitude and undulating terrain. (and not to mention the ropey, hired Kenyan bikes ....)
 
We are taking on this challenge in aid of the charity Restart Africa, a home that rescues Kenya's street children by offering abandoned children a haven from drugs, violence, homelessness and prostitution. During our recent months in Gilgil we developed such strong connection and love for the children and all that Restart does. What we have all been most struck by is the happy atmosphere that in no way matches the unfathomable beginnings they have all had, which is testament to the success of the charity. However, like for much of Kenya, Covid has hit Restart particularly severely with a lack of donations and a rise in the poverty level around Gilgil, directly impacting its street children. In the last month alone, Restart have had to find the finance and space to raise 8 new children. This considered, donations will go further in Restart than ever before. All donations will go directly to the running costs which include food, education and staff salaries for the Restart community.

Any donations, no matter how small will be making a direct difference to these children's lives and help them to live up to the Restart motto - 'think not what you are but what you can become.'
 
Lots of love, from a very nervous and excited Daisy, Jemima, Ben, Jack, Isla, Fintan, Annie, Charlie  and Sammie xx
