Nasio Spinathon Success
July 2015

On Wednesday 15th July business accommodation provider Jennings organised a charity fundraiser on their main site Monument Park, near Chalgrove.

Donna and her team organised the day, arranging for 32 members of the business park to cycle in pairs for 30 minutes on standing bikes. Between them the participants cycled for 8 consecutive hours, and travelled a distance of 436km – the equivalent of from Chalgrove to St Ives in Cornwall!

The day raised an impressive £337.09, which will be match-funded thanks to the generosity of one of Nasio’s donors, meaning in total the Nasio Trust will receive £674.18 from the event. The Nasio Trust is a charity on the business park that support 400 orphans in Western Kenya in an area devastated by the HIV pandemic.

‘We are so grateful to Jennings for arranging this event. Thanks to everyone who supported us on the day, particularly those who braved the bikes!’ Nancy Hunt, Nasio Founder

The money will go towards the medical centre the charity is building. Nancy Hunt, Nasio’s founder, said, ‘We are so grateful to Jennings for arranging this event. Thanks to everyone who supported us on the day, particularly those who braved the bikes!’.

The event made for a fantastic day, and a great opportunity for the businesses on the park to meet each other in a relaxed environment. The bikes were kindly donated by the business park by Sonny from SonnyGym’s, who also offered a free session at his gym to every participant. You can find out more about Monument Business Park here.

Publishing in Africa at the London Book Fair By Katie Isbester

In further support of the Nasio Trust’s Library appeal, Katie Isbester talks about her recent trip to the London Book Fair and a fortuitous discovery!

I didn’t mean to go to the talk. There were some 30,000 people at the London Book Fair and I was supposed to meet at least a few of them. Instead I found myself going to a talk on publishing in Africa because of Nasio Trust. I knew it was trying to build a library, the first of its kind in Western Kenya, and I was rather curious.
