Saints legend Lawrie McMenemy backs charity Walk for Survival for Kenya at Royal Victoria Country Park
IT is a walk that will raise awareness of poverty and help sustain an orphanage in Kenya and it has the support of a Saints legend.
The four mile walk, to raise funds for the Lioness Cubs orphanage in Kikambala that is home to 16 children aged four to 17-years-old, will be opened by Lawrie McMenemy.
To raise awareness of poverty in Africa people will be asked to walk two miles to collect a gallon of water and then return carrying it.
Already more than 20 people have signed up for the event and those turning out can enjoy a fun-packed day of entertainment with music from five local bands throughout the day.
As well as the walk, Christian charity Southampton City Mission will be at the event promoting the work they do with providing emergency food and clothes to those in need.
Kerry Taylor, 34, from Fareham, who has organised the event said: “It will educate people and their families and it is light-hearted and it will encourage people to get involved in poverty awareness and will help more save more children in Africa.”
The event starts at 10am and runs through to 4pm, to take part visit LionessCubsHome.org or simply turn up.
