A SAFE PLACE FOR SABRINA
Creator: Adrienne ShawSabrina Alingase is an elderly woman who lives with four grandchildren in an isolated village in Uganda. Their house is in such a poor state of repair that when it rains they shelter in the latrine. She calls this "HER SAFE PLACE" This is awful and we want to do something about it. For just over £2000 we can build her a new, simple but safe, home. Will you help us do this as soon as possible by donating what you can to this campaign. Thank you in advance.£1,150.00 donated

Austin’s Survival of The Fittest Challenge!!
Creator: Austin AwadziOn 7th October I'm going to be mixing it with a few thousand younger and fitter people to take part in the Men's Health Survival of the Fittest Challenge in Nottingham. It's a 10km course which involves a load of monster obstacles, and lots of water (well, it is being held at the National Water Sports Centre after all!) Its in aid of a charity that is very close to my heart and that I'm a trustee of. The charity is Reach One Touch One Ministries (UK) - or ROTOM UK for short. Its purpose is to raise funds to support and meet the spiritual, social, physical, and psychological needs of the elderly and children under their care in Uganda & Ethiopia. Funds raised from this challenge that I complete will be used for our current campaign to raise funds to build a safe, clean latrine and wash area for each of the elderly people in the village in a remote area of Uganda.
