Kenya does not have a welfare system such as we enjoy in the UK. Education and medical care have to be paid for, and in a relatively poor country covering a large area, they are not necessarily available.

3 Men In A Boat Take On The Thames
July 2018

Nasio trustee and director of GardPass Cyber Neil Passingham has teamed up with Felipe Dias and Emilio Perri to navigate the entire length of the River Thames.

They’ll begin at the source in the Cotswolds and make their way through London and on to the sea during July, August & September whilst raising funds for The Nasio Trust.

Bedecked in bright orange Nasio t-shirts and gaucho hats, they’ll be hard to miss so make sure you give them a cheer as they float past.

The trio are collecting money on their Virgin Giving page – please click here now to offer your support.

We’ll be publishing updates on their progress here and on Nasio’s Facebook page as the adventure unfolds, so be sure to check back and see the latest.

Day 1 – The Three Men in a Boat are underway. Starting close to the source of the Thames near Cricklade in the Cotswolds, we forced our way through 15km of dense weeds and insect-filled undergrowth – at times we had to resort to climbing over boughs whilst in the canoe!

For the first few hours, we saw no-one else surprisingly – swans and ducks were our only companions! However it was not quiet – overhead jets screamed as they performed for a distant air-show.At the hottest point of the day, we inadvertently took a dip when confronted with a sheep trapped at the water’s edge.

Refreshed, we lifted our sodden friend up the bank from which it had fallen. Felipe surprised us by telling us that he could tell that the “lost sheep” was of high value/quality – his owner would be pleased (he had been brought up on a Brazilian sheep farm). Very Biblical we thought!We managed to recover most of our belongings (except one of my shoes) and proceed downstream towards civilisation.

Our efforts for Day 1 ended just past Lechlade where we managed to watch Belgium demolish England, while drinking local cider – us not them!
