Nigel Savory, a keen runner with two marathons already under his belt, completed the 2015 London Marathon in a personal best time of 3.56, and in doing so raised an amazing £7,066.22 on behalf of The XLL Educational Trust.

The money is enabling us to add four further girls to the number of needy children whose school expenses are paid for via The XLL Trust to 17.

“This is such exciting news of adding 4 more children to the sponsorship programme,” said Karen and James Ngugi, founders and principals of The Summit Schools. “Our sincere gratitude goes to Nigel and the committee, and all of you who work so hard to give these children an education. Thank you very much.”

The 17 children sponsored via the Trust range in age from 6 to 16. The majority are sponsored by individuals, many of whom have visited the Summit Schools in Maragua, Kenya and seen for themselves the excellent schooling and care provided to the children by the Ngugis.

While the majority of children at the Schools come from families able to pay for their childrens’ education, Karen and James have always aimed to include orphans and needy children from the Maragua region in their intake. In recent years, their reputation has spread and they now accept and support children from as far away as the slums of Nairobi too.
