My story

[p]As part of our charitable work, a team from Turley undertake an annual visit to either Sierra Leone or the Dominican Republic to help work on long term projects, building a new settlement in Sierra Leone and to provide new housing and classrooms in Dominican Republic. [/p][p]Due to the current pandemic, we are unable to travel to either location to assist the charities. We have therefore set ourselves a challenge of a virtual trip for all co-owners, around all Turley offices and back home, but dropping in on Sierra Leone and the Dominican Republic on the way! This is a 25,000km challenge. We are aiming to raise £10,000 for our chosen charities. [/p][p][b][u]Past Work[/u][/b][/p][p][b]Sierra Leone[/b][/p][p]In February 2020, a team returned to Sierra Leone to support a long term project - building a new settlement to rehouse slum dwellers from the capital, Freetown. The project is establishing 300 low cost homes, business space, education and health facilities with their own water and power supply. During our time in Destiny Village, we helped construct the eighth block of homes, marked out the site for the new secondary school, provided IT training and we also worked alongside slum dwellers to repair a damaged bridge in the heart of Cobolt Slum. It was quite a trip!!

This has enabled more children to have access to local education and new training opportunities, We also re-painted a health clinic in a neighbouring settlement and visited a previous project where we had built a home for 16 disabled children who are now being safely cared for.

[/p][p]Not only that, but Turley exceeded their fundraising target for the project, enabling Go MAD to facilitate the build of a kitchenette/dining area for the children here to eat at school.
