Karibuni Floored!

Home » News » Karibuni Floored!

It was all going to plan. Three drivers had agreed to do a 5.30am run to Heathrow on Friday with three passengers and all the excess baggage of children's goodies that British Airways had agreed that Karibuni could take to Kenya. The other members of the 11-strong party would meet them there and help with the baggage. Then someone mentioned the forecast snow!

After a flurry of phone calls, the drive was changed to Thursday afternoon. The venue was also changed from the airport to nearby Christ Church, Uxbridge. Joy Murphy had managed to persuade the good folks there to let the party sleep on the church floor overnight! A couple of people carrier taxis would then fight any snow in the short trip to the airport the next morning. Well that was Plan B and it worked. Everyone made it in time and the flight went ahead despite the weather.

By now, the group, who all paid their own fare, will doubtless be hard at work building or painting at a couple of the charity's projects for street children. They will be accommodated in people's homes and we look forward to hearing progress reports from them as we have in the past. For the Karibuni Children website, click here.
