He did it!

Above-hip amputee, Richard Vallis, completed his 6k walking challenge yesterday (100 laps of his garden) with a small celebration, cheered and serenaded by socially-distanced neighbours.

Richard has so far raised nearly £4,500 for three charities, including Friends of Chitambo.

A HUGE thanks to all our generous supporters, including a thanks from Chitambo:

Every big thank you from all of us from Chitambo

Senior Nurse, Chitambo Hospital, Zambia

Your donations will enable us to go on helping the hospital with nurse training, ambulance maintenance, and emergency care at this challenging time. The Crowdfunding link remains open until Friday 12th June, in case anyone else wishes to get involved. Please see the link to Crowdfunder here.

Richard will continue walking meantime, with a view to extending his initial target to 10k (130 laps).

Thank you again from all at Friends of Chitambo!
