Help Cissy train to be a teacher in Uganda

Event dates: 24th April 2021 – 25th April 2021

Our story

We are fundraising to help Cissy train to be a primary school teacher in Uganda.

CISSY'S STORY

Cissy came to our Hospital School from Uganda, supported by the charity Facing the World, to receive treatment for a facial tumour at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.

Cissy is now back in Uganda and is working towards achieving her dream of becoming a primary school teacher. She has enrolled in the second part of her course at Madrasa Early Childhood and Development Institute in Kampala and has two years study left to achieve her teaching certificate.

However, her family circumstances have changed, and she is now unable to pay the course fees to continue her studies - without your help!

WHAT WE ARE DOING TO HELP CISSY

Over the weekend of 24th/25th April we have organised sponsored events to raise money to pay for Cissy's teacher training fees.

RUNNERS

Our team of runners, Laura, Caroline, Martin and Josephine will each run a half marathon, 13.1 miles (21km)

CYCLISTS

Paulina will cycle 13 miles

Michelle will cycle up and down Box Hill 13 times on her ZWIFT indoor trainer

WALKERS

Janette will walk 13 miles over the weekend

Please donate whatever you can

TOGETHER WE CAN ALL HELP MAKE CISSY'S DREAM COME TRUE!


Thank you for checking out our page. Making a donation is fast, easy and secure thanks to Give as you Live Donate. They'll take your donation and pass it onto Friends Of Chelsea Children's Hospital School.
