Successful Indulgence Day

Our 6th Indulgence Day on 11th June 2016 was a great success!

Supporters came along and enjoyed therapies (courtesy of Sheer Therapy), haircuts (thanks to Lee the Barber), tea, cake and a beer tent, in the peaceful surroundings of Heather and Nigel Palmer’s garden.

A wonderful day was had by all, and, just as importantly, supporters raised £1,545.45 and this money will enable us to run more Burns Prevention Workshops in our area.

Marathon and Triathlon success!

In April 2016 Shaughan Hawks completed the London Marathon and Heather Palmer completed the Lilongwe Triathlon, both fundraising for African Vision Malawi.

Well done to both and thank you for supporting us!

Between them they raised an amazing £2,616, all of which will go to our projects supporting orphans and vulnerable people in rural Malawi.

Later in the year we have even more people taking on challenges for African Vision Malawi.  Sam Palmer will be climbing the Matterhorn and Rainer Struck will be cycling from London to Marseille.  Click on the links to find out more to sponsor them!

Lilongwe Triathlon

Heather Palmer has signed up to compete in the Lilongwe Triathlon!  This is her first ever Triathlon and she thinks the heat is going to be her biggest challenge, especially since she calculates that she’ll be doing the run around midday.  Good luck Heather!

Please sponsor her here:

Shaughan Hawks training update

Shaughan Hawks is running the London Marathon for us this year!

https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/shaughanhawks1

His latest training run was the Maidstone road race Half Marathon yesterday.  He completed the course in 1hour 57mins, and this was his longest run so far.  He’s got 5 weeks to go, and thinks he might sign up for another half marathon in two weeks time too.  That’ll be on his birthday!

Shaughan ran with his friend Adam, and his mum ran the 10k race too!  Check out the photos of them below >
