The Busoga Trust.
The Busoga Trust is a UK based water, sanitation & hygiene charity. Working mainly in Uganda we have constructed over 2000 safe water sources since 1982, along with providing improved sanitation facilities and hygiene/health education. As a service provider, we actually do the work on the ground. Therefore donors can rest assured that the money they donate is actually going towards the cost of providing valuable, sustainable health interventions.

Hi, thanks for visiting my page!

On 20th November I will be setting out to complete 'The Race of the Planets' in Nepal which is an organized 250km race.

6 marathons in 6 days, in the Himalayas and carrying about 10 kilos of food and equipment on my back.

Mad I know... but for such a good cause so please do sponsor me - I am raising money for the Busoga Trust, a charity in Uganda which changes the lives of millions by providing safe water, improved sanitation and health education to the rural areas of Uganda.

Covering 250km with a 10 kilo pack is clearly not normal behaviour for most of us but in Africa, over 50% of the girls cant even go to school because they have to walk miles and miles every day to collect water, not to mention that a child dies of water-borne diseases every 15 seconds - by the time you've read this, thats probably another one.

Please help support me - I'll be eating freeze dried shepherds pie and wearing the same pair of socks for a week - I need your help and so do they...

THANK YOU (PS I will have a blog to follow me during the race, I'll update you in due course with that link)
