Header Square400The popular Street Kids Direct Family Quiz Night returns this year with the theme of HISTORY.

The Quiz Night is for anyone of any age and teams consist of 8 people who will battle it out through the night to become the evening´s winning team.  The friendly and (mostly) child-easy questions means you won´t feel left out if history is not your area of strength!  Our quiz nights are not serious quizzes and so please come to enjoy a good night out with friends and ready to meet new friends.

The evening is sponsored by Street Kids Direct and the three trustees of the charity, Matt Levett, Joanna Soden and Duncan Dyason will be hosting the evening and bringing you news from the projects the charity supports in Central America.

TEAMS: If you would like to book a table for 8 people then you will be able to choose those who sit with you.  I am sure we can be flexible if you wanted to bring one or two extras to your team or can make a larger team with two tables if needed.  If you come on your own or with a friend we will be happy to place you with a team that will be kind to you and make you feel welcome.

FOOD: Joanna Soden and her dedicated team of cooks will prepare a delicious and healthy home-cooked meal for us.  If you have any dietary requirements (and being Jedi does not count as one of them), please do let us know and we will do our best to accommodate your needs in the menu.

RAFFLE: We will be looking for some great raffle prizes for you but if you have anything you would like to bring along and donate to the raffle table that would be great.  It is a charity event after all!

BAR: A licensed bar will be available on the evening and any profits will go towards our final total of funds raised.

COSTUMES: We all love dressing up and so let´s go all out this year and think of a costume that illustrates a character from history.  Your team will gain extra points if they are dressed as characters from history.  If you would rather wear your ordinary clothes then we won´t be offended.  The main thing is you come and enjoy the evening and feel comfortable throughout the evening.

DONATIONS: Being a charity event we will be accepting donations on the evening as the ticket price will cover the rent of the hall, materials and food.  PLEASE be as generous as you can and help us help more vulnerable children in Central America.

We look forward to seeing you on the evening and any help in setting up or clearing away would be appreciated.

walk1This summer Duncan Dyason and Steve Poulson achieved their goal of walking 100km in one day in Central America!

The Camino por Amor walk started in 2016 when Duncan walked the 1,400km from Costa Rica to Guatemala to raise funds for the projects Street Kids Direct supports in Guatemala and Honduras with street-living and high-risk children and youth.

On Saturday 12th August 2017 Duncan walked 100km in Guatemala and Steve 100km in Honduras.  The challenge was tough as neither Steve nor Dunc had walked this far before and in training walks both could only attempt 60km.

On the day the weather was good to both who were joined by 50-60 walkers throughout the day.

walk2Steve and his team in Honduras managed the walk 16 minutes faster than Dunc and his team in Guatemala but Steve agreed that if he had to face the grueling walk up the mountains of Guatemala then Duncan would have finished at least an hour earlier.  Both took 18 hours to walk the 100km with breaks every 10km for stretching and refreshments.

Thanks to all those who sponsored the event and helped raise just over £6,500 for the charity with Gift Aid (UK tax) included.  Thanks also for the many messages on the giving page and on Facebook before, during and after the event as they were of great encouragement to Dunc and Steve.

Stay tuned for more information on Radio Christmas about next year´s challenge!

Street Kids Direct works in partnership with the Mi Arca project in Guatemala City and two years ago we launched a specialist mentoring programme to help support the most vulnerable children who are in the process of being abandoned or are at very high social risk of living on the streets.

During the last two years we have discovered that for a small group of children in the programme it is often necessary to offer them emergency accommodation during the week due to the precarious nature of their lives.

This situation led us to explore the option of having a boarding house, which we are calling a Protection home, that will offer the most vulnerable children a safe environment throughout the week.  Since all the children have been enrolled in school, as a prerequisite to being in the mentoring programme, we need to give them extra support and protection while they are in the school week.  This will mean operating the home on the model of a boarding house where children arrive after school on Monday and stay each day till they go to school on the Friday.

It could be that the home will then offer us the opportunity of organising special weekend retreats and events for other children.  We would like to see how the initial phase goes and then evaluate
