Charlotte runs, swims and cycles for Villa Maria!
This weekend Charlotte Ashbridge completed the Liverpool 2011 Triathlon
in a fantastic one hour and 51 minutes - well done indeed!
So far, Charlotte has raised a brilliant £615 for Villa Maria, which wil be used to expand 'Katie-Ville', the collection of new houses for vulnerable single-parent families in the shanty town. These houses can cost only around £500 to build, but provide safe, and sanitary homes with electricity, running water and sewerage, which makes an enormous difference to any family previously living in this kind of rough shelter:
The 'Katie-Ville' initiative to offer improved housing to the families of the most disadvantaged children in Villa Maria, began in 2008, after friends, colleague and family set up a fund in the memory of Katie Ashbridge, a volunteer in Peru with Quest back in 2000, and Charlotte's cousin. There is no doubting the commitment of the Ashbridges and their friends to continue to support Villa Maria - thank you.
With supporters like Charlotte, we will continue to provide new homes to give children and their families the best start in life.
Katie was a volunteer at our Villa Maria Project in Peru back in 2000. Tragically, she died in 2007. Family, friends and work colleagues of Katie's have set up a fund in her name, and some of these funds are going to help the project she supported with Quest.
