Children Of Watamu

We give home and hope to children in need to give them a chance in life

Charity Registration No. 1098731



All of the money I have raised has been collected. In total, it will be about £3,700:00. My goal is to raise £5,000 this year. I am not sure how I will achieve this, but I do have a few ideas. I believe there will be a further £125 raised by my daughters primary school, by the end of the year. 

Tandem Skydive

On June 21st 2009 I jumped out of a perfectly good aeroplane to raise more money for the Children in Watamu. The Happy House Orphanage is still being built and the charity needs our support to complete the building. My Skydive was was life changing experience and I raised £375.00 for the children.

Swim 100 Kilometres in 100 days

I successfully completed my "Big Swim" for the children. It was a very tough challenge, but very worthwhile, as I raised about £3250. I am still waiting for the Company matching cheque to be sent to Sue, before updating this site with the new total.

Me in my SpeedoZ ..... lol


I was introduced to the Children of Watamu charity by my friend, Chris Franklin. Chris works tirelessly raising money for this wonderful cause. Click here for more information about the projects being undertaken in Watamu.

Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It’s also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Working For The Children Of Watamu gets your money faster and, if you’re a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.
