What is GETA?

"GETA - Give Education To All" was formed in 2014 as a Charitable Trust by a group of volunteers from St Margaret of Scotland Catholic Church, Twickenham, UK who were inspired to support initiatives by Fr Paul Bigirwa, the Founder & Director of a Ugandan NGO 'Sustainable Action for the Rural Sector' aka 'SARS'.

Fr Paul's keen sense of social justice & moral responsibility have been the driving force behind the development of a number of life-enhancing health, education & poverty alleviation projects in rural Uganda. 

St Thersa's Football Academy is the latest initiative to further develop the life opportunities for all students.

AIM:    To promote the general well-being of young footballers – girls and boys – and at the same time enhance their technical, tactical, physical and social skills in order to build the next generation of Ugandan footballers

What's happening?

Smashed the Cabbage Patch in 1h 37m 19s and age grading of 61.70 (anything over 60 is 'good'). Donations to GETA gratefully received - hit the 'donate' button above. Thanks to anyone who has already donated.

Last Sunday I was very pleased to receive a cheque for £4,000, our proceeds from this year's Lenten Project.

Last Sunday afternoon - 20th March - a fabulous number of families, and individuals, young and old took part in the Lenten fund-raising fun run. People ran, walked, scooted and cycled along the fabulous two-mile route along Twickenham Embankment, Riverside and around Marble Hill park.
