Following the successful completion of his 24 hour static bicycle fundraising challenge, Staff Sergeant (SSgt) Rob Humphreys from the British Army Training Unit Kenya (BATUK) recently visited Talitha Kum, a Children’s Orphanage in Nyahururu.

While there, he presented the Ksh 80,000 he raised which will go towards refurbishing areas of the orphanage that have fallen into disrepair.

His fundraising effort took place over the 8-9 August at the Nyati Barracks gymnasium and SSgt Humphreys also received £1,500.00 from the Community Engagement Team to provide new black school shoes, socks, stationary and rain coats for the children.

SSgt Humphreys gained support from the Panari Hotel who made a donation of blankets and also provided lunch for the day.
