Dear Parents

As you know, each year KNES hosts a Charity ‘Fun Day’ in order to raise money for both the “Red Crescent Society”, here in Kuwait, and “Hope and Homes for Children”, in the UK. Unfortunately, due to the construction going on at the school it wasn’t possible this year. However, we do not want this to stop our commitment to supporting these important charities.  As you are aware, we have had many small fundraising activities thus far and two weeks ago the Talent Show, which would have been part of our Fun day, to raise funds for charity.

Mr Gary, a Year 4 teacher, has been with the school for six years now and is going to be taking part in the Marathon Des Sables desert race in the Sahara from the 6th of April till the 16th of April. This is a long distance, at least 250 km, multi stage event where all the competitors have to be self-sufficient during the entire race. This means that they have to carry all their food, clothes, sleeping bags etc. for the whole time they are running. The only thing supplied each day is their water ration and salt tablets. More details are here http://www.marathondessables.com/en/marathon-des-sables-maroc

We are hoping that you will help support both Mr Gary in his efforts and at the same time donate to the charities. You can do this in a number of ways.

You can either pledge an amount per km completed, per stage completed or an amount upon completing this incredible distance.

Please complete the slip below and have it returned to Mr Gary at school.

Thank you for your support.
