Wonderful Marathon Runners raise funds for Community projects. Thank you!

David and Kate at the start
And again at the end of 13.1 gruelling miles

Just how do you thank these wonderful people for training and then running the Oxford Half Marathon. The distance 13.1 miles, thats just over 21 km in 2 hours 15 minutes and 2 hours 22 minutes. Akpe kakaka (Ewe language for thank you totally)

At 6 miles (10 Km)

Kate at 8 miles (13Km)
Still smiling

David at 8 miles (13Km)
Still happy

They have raised over £800 and when you add on the gift aid this will be about £1,000.
Phenomenal.
This amount can go a long way towards helping communities build a toilet block, renovate a library or even go towards putting in a borehole to provide clean drinking water.
For example the money raised could go a long way to building the superstructure on the toilet and roof it.
How worthwhile is that.

The funds raised could convert this
to this…
Foli John and Michael Deh who are working on the Alavanyo Agome Toilet say Akpe bor oo (A very big thankyou)

Alavanyo Agome Toilet block progress

After a short break the community is working on the toilet block again. We were wondering why they were progressing so slowly. We found out that the community work day was being used to improve facilities in the primary school and sadly attend funerals of prominent members of the community.

The organisation of the community work is impressive and as everyone does their bit it is recorded. One of our final tasks is to give all of the participants a certificate of appreciation for their work. These records of the participants allow us to do this.
