James Kennedy is running 500km to raise £1,500 for EduLife MOGGY MATCHMAKER­S Are you a match for Mr Darcy? MR Darcy is an adorable, mature gentleman looking for an indoor home to retire to. He has had his teeth cleaned, his nails trimmed, his fur brushed, and is all spruced up, ready to go. He is approximat­ely 13 and has tested positive for FIV, which means he must have an indoor- only home. He is lovely natured, friendly and playful, although he is partial to regular naps as well. He would make someone a wonderful companion, preferably in a quiet home where he can get lots of attention. He has early stage renal issues, which is not unusual in a cat of his age, but it is controlled by a renal diet and blood tests, so his new owner will need to make sure this is maintained. Could you be Mr Darcy’s perfect companion? If you are, go to www. cats.org.uk/farnham/adopt-a-cat, call 01252 334 644 or email homing@farnham.cats.org.uk ‘It’s kept us going’ - care home says thanks for support James goes on the run to help young people in Zambia A UNIVERSITY graduate is running 5km every day for 100 days in a bid to raise £1,500 for a charity helping to empower young people in Zambia. James Kennedy from Church Crookham started his fundraisin­g challenge three weeks ago to raise money and awareness for EduLife, a charity he knows well after seeing how the work they do can benefit disadvanta­ged children following a trip to Zambia as a student at Salesian College in Farnboroug­h. The 21-year-old said: “Edulife UK is a fantastic charity that has been extremely close to me for so many years. “In 2016 I travelled to Mazabuka, Zambia to take part in multiple programmes for disadvanta­ged children in the City of Joy.” James, who was able to raise awareness for the charity as vicepresid­ent of the University of Birmingham Rugby Union Club, added: “Since then I have been attempting to raise money for a specific scholarshi­p program that allows children of Zambia to receive funding for their education - this program is funded by EdulifeUK. “I decided to run 5km every day for 100 days to attempt to reach my goal of raising £,1500.” James has currently raised over £600.
