Where do they think they are?!

We are so grateful for the support we continually receive from friends around the UK, Uganda and beyond. We have faithful prayers, supporters and volunteers, who give their time, money and enthusiasm – and we couldn’t exist without them! 

There are also the odd few people who decide to do something slightly out-of-the-ordinary to raise essential funds for our work. Three of these people are Tom, Laura and Jonny from Ipswich, who are doing just that this weekend.

This weekend (8-9th September) a couple of friends and I are doing a walking challenge in aid of a little bit of HOPE.

We’ll be dropped off about 30 miles from home and our task will be to find our way back. Of course, this sounds pretty straightforward but we’ll have been blindfolded so we’ll have no idea of our location. Plus we won’t be allowed to use phones, any means of transport, GPS or any other helpful technology you might be able to think of to help us get back – so it’s basically a map, compass and a fair bit of luck that will hopefully see us home!

a little bit of HOPE is a great charity that supports local communities in Uganda. They help to provide education, better sanitation and training. It’s a very worthwhile cause.

Any donations, however big or small, would be really appreciated! If you’d like to donate, you can do so HERE.

There are also more details about what we’re doing and why we’re doing it on this mydonate page if you’re interested in finding out more.

We also need suggestions for a starting location and you can get involved by helping us with that too! Obviously, we won’t see the suggestions beforehand, but one will be selected for us as our starting point. You don’t have to be local to Ipswich/Suffolk to suggest a location – it’s as simple as finding a point on the map around the right distance away and typing in the co-ordinates. We’re also looking for some suggestions of extra challenges that we’ll need to complete during the walk. Further details on all of this can be found HERE.
