Payday Express employee raises money for Harambee for Kenya

Tue, 3 Apr 2012 11:53:58 EST

Gary Owens, a customer support agent at Payday Express, is travelling to Kenya to help the Harambee for Kenya charity.
 
Harambee for Kenya works with street children, giving them somewhere safe to sleep and to receive medical attention, if required. As well as providing them with a home, the charity also sends them to school, feeds them and shows them care.
 
Gary is travelling with the 23rd Bromley Scout Group to a safe house in Kenya, where they will help with maintenance work and spend time with the children, many of them orphaned. The group will also visit another one of the charity's sites to spend time with children currently enrolled in a feeding programme.
 
The group will be flying out on March 31 and will return to the UK on April 14.
 
Gary said: 'We are pleased to be a part of this project so that we can help Harambee for Kenya in whatever way they need, and help to provide a caring atmosphere for the orphaned children now living in the safe house.
 
'We believe this trip will teach English Scouts that there is more to life than what we have here in the UK. It will give them an understanding of the benefit of learning other cultures and helping people,' he added.
 
Payday Express employees pay £1 each Friday to wear casual clothes to work. They donate the money collected to a different charity each month with March's donation going to Harambee for Kenya to pay for clothing, schooling and feeding the children on all three projects that Harambee for Kenya currently has. 
 
The charity is also looking to build a new house in another district in a bid to help 40 more children in the short-term, and hundreds more in the future.
 
 
Sarah Carroll, operations manager at the payday loan company, said: 'I am very proud of Gary and his scout group which is dedicating itself to such a fantastic cause.
 
'And I am pleased that Payday Express can help contribute by raising money for projects Harambee for Kenya are working on.'
