Bex and our new long-term volunteer Lucy Swift (left) are planning to trek up a Ugandan mountain to raise money for our school – possibly three legged!
They aim to climb nearby Wanale Ridge, part of the huge Mount Elgon massif on March 30. The ridge looms over Mbale, where Child of Hope works.
Lucy said: “We are very proud to work at this amazing place and want to challenge ourselves to raise some funds to support Child of Hope’s vital work. If we raise over a £1000 we will do the trek three legged!”
Bex said on Facebook: “So, apparently I’m going to haul my ageing body up a mountain whilst potentially being strapped to another ageing (but fitter!) body in order to raise funds for Child Of Hope. But we’re only doing it 3-legged if we raise over £1000... so whatever you do... if you love me, DO NOT DONATE!!!!!!!"
So, if you’d like to sponsor them – just don’t tell Bex – click here to go to their JustGiving fundraising page: https://www.justgiving.com/BexLucy - go on, please do!
JustGiving sends your donation straight to Child of Hope and automatically reclaims Gift Aid if you are a UK taxpayer, so your donation is worth even more.
