As part of a school project Angela was raising money for the Uganda Hands for Hope charity. On 18 Feb 2012 she did 250 continuous kicks completing them in 7 minutes and raising over £100. Well done Angela!
Angela is fun raising for the Uganda Hands for Hope charity. Next Saturday, February 18th, Angela will undertake to do 250 continuous kicks after the Junior class (around 13:00). If you wish to sponsor Angela please speak to her before or after the lesson.
The Uganda Hands for Hope charity targets education health and poverty in Uganda to help disadvantaged children and their families. The charity was chosen by the year 7 staff at Angela’s school.
On Wednesday, January 25th, the Kenmei Karate Club in Sutton celebrated its first birthday with a special charity event. Sensei Neil Jerome took on the 100-man kumite challenge to raise money for the Smile Train – the KUGB’s current charity appeal. The event, which was streamed live to the world (and watched by a few enthusiasts) also attracted karatekas from Woking Shotokan Karate Club and from Egham Karate Club. Sensei Jerome should be very proud in having raised nearly £600, which will enable more children in developing countries who suffer from a cleft to smile and lead a normal life. Oh, and they had cake too.
