Team story

[p]Anna Sambrook & Charlotte Allum, both members of the Kids for Kids Team, love Stand Up Paddle-boarding![/p][p]Anna has been paddle-boarding for a couple of years on the sea from her home in Cornwall and loves escaping to the waves whenever she can, even in winter! [/p][p]Charlotte describes herself as a novice but loves paddle-boarding on the river from her home in Purley on Thames and the serenity it brings![/p][p]Together they have dreamt up an ambitious plan of paddle-boarding 20 MILES down the Thames from Wallingford to Henley in support of the charity, Kids for Kids, which this year celebrates 20 years of standing up for the forgotten children of Darfur who live lives of unimaginable hardship and poverty. [/p][p]The event will take place on 25th September and they hope to raise £2000 - that's enough to provide 40 goats (20 each) to the children and families in desperate need in Darfur.[/p][p]Anna and Charlotte will be joined by friends, family - and even some goats! - and would so love your support to spur them on!![/p][p][br][/p][p]If you are wondering 'Why Goats?' - then read on![/p][p]Darfur is one of the most impoverished and forgotten about regions in Africa. Life is an everyday struggle as they bear the brunt of climate change. Droughts, floods, disease are an everyday risk and with crops failing and inflation at a record 350% many families are struggling to feed their families and are surviving on just one meal a day.[/p][p]Kids for Kids provides 5 goats to a family in need, the milk from these amazing animals provides vital protein and other nutrients to keep hunger at bay and turn the health of children around. Mothers can then earn a living by selling any excess - being able to afford healthcare and even to send her children to school![/p][p]Kids for Kids also supports communities through other projects such as the installation of water pumps, construction of kindergartens and training midwives and first-aid workers bringing healthcare and education to many areas of Darfur for the first time.[/p][p]Please support Anna, Charlotte & the team as they take on their Challenge20 - and maybe you'll be inspired to hold your own Challenge20?![/p][p]For more information visit: www.kidsforkids.org.uk[/p]
