Adventure trip 2017 review

Our team of 12 guests climbed Mount Kenya in support of our kids and raised an amazing £7,200!

During the course of their 2 week spell in Kenya they touched hearts and changed lives forever. They visited families, ran our Mount Kenya Marvellous 5k or 10k races, officially opened new houses we have built, went on safari where they saw lions, giraffes, buffalo, zebra and much more, met world famous athletes, acted as team GEF for a day assessing the needs of a family and recommending the support we should offer, toured Kasarani Stadium and last but by no means least climbed Mount Kenya.

Thank you to Alan Brown (his 3rd trip in 3 years) and Abi Lyall for these kind words about the experience:

"Huge thanks to the AWESOME team in Kenya, it feels like my second home, the people are amazing. The work that the Gathimba Edwards Foundation puts into the two weeks that we were there is astounding, I am sure everyone that was with me would agree. Already looking forward to a new adventure with the next group who are going to go next April, if anyone is thinking of going, JUST DO IT, it will be the best experience of your life and make you appreciate what you have here. What are you waiting for?"

Alan Brown.


"What a trip, amazing, emotional, exhausting, exhilarating, beautiful, breathtaking and more than anything humbling. We were able to witness first hand, not only the utter poverty but, the inspirational work the GEF team are doing. How so little can do so much and how a smile and a wave(and maybe a sweetie and some bubbles) can bring so much joy. This trip has changed us it has inspired us it has moved us and it will remain with us."

Abi Lyall.


We owe thank you to Mark Shaw Funeral Services and Core 94 for kindly sponsoring aspects of the trip.
