The annual Crawley A.I.M. Charity 6 and 12hr Race organised by our ‘trusty trustee’ Pam Storey is taking place as usual at the K2 Sports facility in April – this year also with a 24hr race. Both the 24hr & the 12hr are now fully booked with others waiting – Still places on the 6hr though if you’re interested. Over 80 runners so far… They must be MAD if you ask me… ‘Making A Difference’ – we are so grateful. Thank you.
Note: the event has taken place and we are now waiting to see what the final donation is. A big thank you to all those who took part, without your efforts we could do what we do.
It used to be just 2 terms in office until the law was changed a few years ago to allow the president to remain for 3, now it seems that it has been changed again from a retirement age of 75, to life, meaning that he can now remain until he dies. We understand that the 400+ members of parliament received very large sums of money to bring this about and have also had their terms of office extended from 5 to 7 years between elections, so there will therefore be no more elections until 2023. The rich get richer & the poor are getting poorer.
It started with just a plot of wasteland in the year 2000… Now see the amazing things that are there… We are amazed…
Our main concern for the Schools has been to have water freely available and also power to provide lighting etc.
This year 2013 and in the last month we have finally achieved that goal
The finding of water was a major breakthrough and no mean feat as we had to dig through the hill down to 58 metres through a lot of rock.
For electricity we had to set up 9 electricity poles over roughly a quarter of a mile on neighbouring plots (with the neighbours permission of course).But now they will be able to access electricity for themselves via our poles,something which would have been impossible for them before we came.
All This has created a big interest in the area and many people are buying up the land around or renting plots to build on.
in the future we plan to pipe the water from the borehole into all the buildings and to put in outside standpipes and have the water pumped by electricity.
