Destination Judo climb Kilimanjaro for Sarah’s Promise

Destination Judo’s Marc Preston and three judo dads (Steven Turnbull, Jason McEvoy and Brendan Robertson) recently climbed Kilimanjaro. Destination Judo parents and children support ‘Sarah’s Promise’, a small charity set up to help unwanted and disadvantaged children. Now Destination Judo has raised enough money to enable the charity to build an orphanage in Fuka in the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.

This latest venture was to raise money to provide the little things that will turn the building into a home-from-home for 32 children who are now moving in. The Destination Judo team celebrated at the top of the mountain, and in front of the orphanage with the Pastor and some of the children. The intrepid mountaineers delivered toys, bags and stickers to the children – together with a batch of letters written by the children at Destination Judo.

Sarah's Trust

The Pastor in charge wrote in a letter:- ‘It is with great honor that we hereby acknowledge and appreciate your kindness and support towards the completion of the Fuka Childrens Home. The completion of the house brings a lot of joy as we see some of the homeless children now enjoying their new life at the house’.
