The post below is from Coral Hayward who is one of the participants in the Russell Roof Tiles Charity fundraiser
‘Walk for Life - Pitching for Pennies’
A number of employees and some of their spouses/partners have walked over a million steps in the last 3.5 months which is the distance Russell Roof Tiles Managing Director, Andrew Hayward, calculated as the amount of steps it would take if you were able to walk from their Stretton Head Office to Footprints, in Kenya.
As you can see from Coral’s post, this has been a very challenging challenge and the participants have had to contend with adverse weather conditions, dogs not willing to participate in walkies on certain days due to the number of steps, injuries and not to mention those blisters but they have all excelled and everyone at Footprints 👣 is so extremely grateful.
“Well that’s me done for another great charity 🚶♀️🏃♀️👣 - I’m officially hanging up my walking trainers #ChallengeCompleted
105 days = 1,356,297 steps done
I truly hope that we have helped to raise awareness for The Footprints Orphanage and the wonderful work that Kerry does looking after the vulnerable children in her care.
Just knowing every penny myself and the team have raised will be matched by Russell Roof Tiles makes every blister and every step walked all worth while
A huge thank you to Coral, Andrew and all the Russell Roof Tiles team for Walking to enhance the lives of all of our children 👣
Please come along and support our fundraising event. Every penny raised goes directly to the children’s future.
We hope you can join us 👣

For the last few months were been researching the life’s of these 2 little children who’s mother was allegedly murdered and her body never recovered over a year ago their plight was identified by their young aunty who’s own life has been challenged beyond imagination with her own child living with cerebral palsy but has been now burdened with the responsibility of her sisters children, life in rural Africa can be extremely difficult many families just surviving and living a life you would not believe possible !!! Footprints is here to support such families and today we brought Bengao and his sister Abigail back to our Footprints family .We are also working hard to find long term therapy for Naomi , the family lives so far in a rural community they can’t afford the transport to even get her to hospital ! Thank you to all our network of friends family and sponsors who without this continued support would never have made today possible !
A huge warm welcome to our latest arrival at Footprints 👣. At 2.15pm today our lovely cow, Precious, gave birth to our new baby calf, Archie. #Footprints #sustainability
Our children are having extra tuition with Teacher Kolonzo on Sundays. This tuition, for all the Footprints children, has been kindly supported by the Holly Brown Learning for Life Zone Fund (HBLLZ) and their tuition takes place in the Holly Brown Room here at Footprints.
Mama Kerry, Uncle Patrick and all the children wish to convey their continued gratitude for the love and support they have received from Holly’s wonderful family and friends and for the continued ongoing support from the staff, pupils and former pupils at John Taylor High School.
This is a unique opportunity for African children and as they sit their 2nd Term exams next week, we are sure that this extra tuition will boost their grades 🎓 and give them all much brighter opportunities.
Asante Sana everyone 👣
Huge congratulations to Jamie Pegg and Miss Evans (JTHS) who, today, completed their sky dive for Footprints. A fantastic effort! Well done.

On 6th October this year, three young ladies who were very close friends of our much loved angel, Holly Brown, are intending to run the Tamworth 10k to raise funds for Footprints Orphanage.
Read Téa’s story and help them to support all the wonderful work that Mamma Kerry and her team undertake.
Every penny raised goes directly to the future of our Footprints family.
At Footprints, we have created the Holly Brown Learning for Life Zone where our children get to experience enrichment activities they could only ever have dreamed of. Holly’s legacy lives on. #BeMoreHolly 🦋
