Yesterday, the British Army Training Unit Kenya (BATUK) held a charity raffle draw for over 50 Prizes, broadcasted through Facebook Live.

The raffle, organised by 1 Military Police Brigade, raised over £1,750 (Ksh 238,000) for Nanyuki Children’s Charitable Trust who will be working with BATUK to support the local Community.

Posting on their Facebook page, BATUK said: “Thank you to all those who donated prizes making this great event possible and raising money for a good cause!”

Nanyuki Children’s Charitable Trust are a UK-based Registered Charity whose aim is to provide financial assistance to the most needy children in Nanyuki. This assistance can be in the form of school fees, food, school uniforms, clothes, medical treatment and much more.

This small Charity has three voluntary trustees and no paid staff. Two official representatives are based in Nanyuki and they distribute everything sent out via the British Army Post Office (BAPO).

They have been fortunate enough to receive tremendous support in their endeavors from various organisations, especially the British Army and the Royal Air Force who provide the charity with logistical support.
