Thank you so much to everyone who came along to Carols By Candlelight in St Adrian's Church in Gullane yesterday. It was a wonderful afternoon showcasing a wealth of talent and Christmas spirit. On behalf of Kipawa, thank you to Joanna and Orland Heijmer-Mason for putting the whole event together and for choosing Kipawa as the charity they wanted to support. Everyone clearly had a fantastic time.
Thanks to everyone's marvellous generosity, we raised over £850 for Kipawa. That is a fantastic amount and will go a very long way to helping the children and families of Ruiru in Kenya.
Thanks also to John Bradley, Jane Kirk and the members of the Edinburgh Choral Union, Janet Anderson, Ros Richardson, St Adrian's Church, Gullane Parish Church, Shonagh McEwan, Gordon and Heather Kirk, North Berwick Tesco, Gullane Co-op and everyone else who worked so hard to make this event such a success.

Kipawa President - and Total Warrior - Kieran Hudson explains the joy and pain of TOTAL WARRIOR...
"On 12th September 2015, I was one quarter of Kipawa’s first obstacle event team when we took part in TOTAL WARRIOR at North Berwick, East Lothian. The race involved a 12k run through a very muddy course of hill climbs, sprints, carrying logs, jumping in mud, monkey bars, climbing over walls and about 25 other tough, painful and excitingly named obstacles including...
Thanks and congratulations to my team mates - Amy Howard, Amanda Hudson and Malcolm Holwill for taking up the challenge, getting through the training and becoming Total Warriors! A special thank you to Amy for putting the team together.
We finished in a very respectable 64th place in a time of 1:48:29 and had a great day. We trained hard in the months before and it was definitely a tough challenge but all was worth it on the day – there is great camaraderie over the course and it really felt rewarding to complete the course. We also managed to raise over £1200 in sponsorship for Kipawa - so that made (most of) the pain worthwhile!
We are already thinking about doing it all over again in 2016 so please get in touch if you’d like to join us!"
