About

Sam Walley and Freddie Kuzemko have been friends since they started playing rugby as 4 year olds at Heathfield & Waldron Rugby Football Club. Every year they have played in the same team and are now in the Under 14s. They are also studying together at Heathfield Community College.

In February 2018 17 students (including Sam and Freddie) & 3 staff members from Heathfield Community College will visit the village of Kabubbu to take part in a volunteer project in conjunction with the Quicken Trust. 

The College has a long term relationship with the Quicken Trust.  As well as members of staff visiting Kabubbu over the years the College took a group of students for the first time in 2011. 
During the visit students contributed to building a house for the community, led primary school assemblies, took primary & secondary lessons, led Sunday school and participated in arts & crafts sessions as well as a senior citizens party.

We fully expect this coming trip to be a life-changing experience.

The costs for their trip are being paid for by their families so 100% of the donations given will go directly to Quicken Trust charity.
 

Event details

Climbing for Kabubbu Three Peaks Challenge

22nd – 24th July the Walley's (Sam and Mark) and Kuzemko's (Freddie and Matt) undertook the tough challenge of climbing the three UK National Peaks - Wales; Snowdon, England; Scafell Pike and Scotland; Ben Nevis in 72 hours. Along with friends and family too, thank you again for your support.
Freddie's ankle didn't heal in time so instead he did a 25 mile cycle and dyed his hair pink, all fund raising for the Quicken Trust.

So how did it go;
We travelled 1,420 miles spending 27 ½ hours in the car Sam got down first from Ben Nevis and we completed it all in 57 hours 31 mins !
No rain, no clouds, stunning scenery, awesome experience thanks to everyone that has helped walk with us and encourage us. A big thank you to great British public for donations on the mountain too.
 
The Quicken Trust a Sussex-based charity, which is transforming the lives of people living in poverty in the Ugandan village of Kabubbu. It works in partnership with a range of organisations in the UK and worldwide.

Quicken promises that 100% of every donation goes to Kabubbu. Administration costs are funded separately. Any money generated by Gift Aid is used where needed most
