Sam's Walk

In September , Sam Gardner, who has recently joined the Destiny Children team to manage their grant Sam's aim applications, is challenging herself to a sponsored walk to raise funds for Destiny Garden School, Mombasa.

As Sam lives in Paris, this will be no ordinary walk; she is walking from the Château de Versailles to Notre Dame!

Please support her. Donations can be made in a number of ways; please see below.


Sam says:
Sam's Walk

My family moved to Kenya when I was 6 months old and we lived there for nearly 4years, spending our holidays in Mombasa where Destiny Garden School is located. My brother Simon started to support the school last year and he went with his girlfriend to visit last August. He is so enthusiastic about supporting the school, that my husband and I decided to get involved and we’ve since become a Destiny child sponsor to Pamela. 


I live in St Germain-en-Laye, on the outskirts of Paris and a short drive from Versailles.  At the end of August, I will be doing a sponsored 15 mile walk from the Château de Versailles to Notre Dame with a well earned glass of wine at the end!

We take for granted the basics of life that the children at the school so desperately need.  Please help me raise as much as I can for the Destiny Garden School – thank you."
