Have you ever tried to play soccer/football wearing crocs? We were contacted by Lizzie Crudgington who is looking to raise money for a charity that supports sports education for disadvantaged youth in Nairobi, including contributing sports materials. There are many ways to contribute, including donating any spare, gently-used football shoes. Please read on for more info.

This summer, the Crudgington family (from the Nyon area) will travel to Nairobi to work with disadvantaged 9 to 16 year-olds, supporting a local community organization, National Volunteer Services Kenya, in providing education for good health and well-being, whilst sharing their passion for sports.

Before heading to Kenya, they are raising funds that will go directly to the local community, as well as taking with them sportswear donated by institutions and individuals, and money to purchase (from Nairobi markets) additional sports equipment that is prioritised by the community.

Visit Sports4Kenya for more information about NVS Kenya and the Sports Education Programme, as well as opportunities to get involved.

Rowing back to fitness
Following rotator cuff surgery in 2023 to fix a long-term shoulder injury, Lizzie is now aiming to get fit and strong again in 2024, and is taking to the rowing machine. Starting in February with short 1 and 2km rowing sessions, she will be ramping up the distance and speed, and has set herself an ambitious target: 400km on the rower by 30 June 2024!

Cycling Lake Geneva
As practice for her Silver Duke of Edinburgh Award expedition, Ona (age 14) will take to her bike with fellow DofE'ers for a three-day trip around Lake Geneva in June. A total of 180km, each day will be on average 60km.
