Bandish's Journey and Olives

Why we need your help

I have great childhood memories from growing up in Kenya, which is where I was born and lived until the age of 10. I’ve been able to return every year since, allowing me to stay close and connected to my roots. 

 I went to St Mary’s School in Nairobi, a place I’m so proud to be associated with. The school's headmaster at the time, Father Hogan, created a great sense of unity amongst all of the school children. We were also taught how to embrace competitiveness in a positive way with a particular focus on sport. Growing up in such an environment as well as reading and watching documentaries over the years about a certain Father Colm O’Connell, who is known as the ‘Godfather of Kenyan Running’, has inspired me greatly. As someone who loves almost any sport, I have personally seen how having that excitement, challenge and sense of togetherness helps in so many parts of life.

 Thanks to my mother, I have been very fortunate in life. Through her sheer determination and love, she facilitated an incredibly fun childhood and opened up access to many opportunities for my sisters and I.

Many of you will have had similar experiences so let’s all get together and help create the same atmosphere we had for the less fortunate children of Kenya, a place very close to my heart. 

The money we raise will go towards the education as well as the provision of sporting facilities and equipment at the Olives Rehabilitation Centre in Bombolulu, Mombasa. The centre aims to provide a safe, secure, warm and comforting learning environment for neglected and desperate children, many of whom are orphans or from troubled families.

Let’s all begin this journey together with a group charity walk where we’ll raise funds for the special children at Olives whilst also doing something active and fun!

Every penny you donate will go to Bubbles and Stars who will submit the monies through to Olives.

Thank you!
