🎉One more sleep! Tomorrow evening we gather to celebrate 10 years of GEF with what we hope will be an unforgettable and inspirational evening of humbling stories of impact and resilience, live music, delicious food, and even better company at Thainstone Centre.

📷 It all started with 22 mattresses being delivered to the Pavilion Children’s home 10 years ago. We can’t wait to commemorate a decade of making a difference together with all of you.🫶🏼

Remember, you can still join our silent auction even if you’re unable to attend tomorrow. Click the link in our our comments to see the incredible things up for grabs.

🧡We are also looking for a headline sponsor🧡

For one year only, the Mel’s Union Street Mile races on Saturday 31st August will take a new route!

📍Starting at the Holburn Junction end of Union Street, runners will run down Union Street & turn left along Union Terrace Gardens, past the soon to be new ‘Tarragon By Graham Mitchell 2’ before turning right past His Majesty's Theatre, past Robert Gordon's College, down and up Schoolhill & then turn right, past Marischal College & into the finish 🏁 With no U-turn this year, it can be a great course for a personal best!

Thank you to St. Margaret’s School for Girls for allowing us to use the school for registration on the day.

Entries can be made for all 3 of our GEF Safari Series race via the link the comments below. Please note that entries close 31st May for our Hazlehead 5k & kids 1k sponsored by Salus Technical

Iten : the Home of Champions
Sponsoring a child through GEF means we pay their school fees and purchase all the necessary extras such as books and uniform. 📚

Have you ever wondered how we pay the school fees? 🤓

Sometimes it’s through the bank, but a lot of the time our staff in Kenya visit the various schools to pay directly to them. 🏫

Here is David Sagida, in Iten last month, when he was paying term fees for the primary students we support.

Your sponsorship money goes directly to the education of the child you sponsor and it makes life changing differences 🤩
