Compassion Challenges -Teresa Blumsom

Challenger Profile


Teresa Blumsom

Challenge Date:

June 2018

My Challenge:

To raise awareness of Compassion & poverty & to walk 42km in Kenya.

To achieve my fundraising target & sponsorship commitments from other people so that as many children as possible can be educated & cared for within the Compassion programme.




Sponsored Target:

Online Total: £1,447.00

Offline Total: £20.00

Gift Aid: £292.00

I am the 2nd eldest of 7 children. I have 2 sons, 2 daughter-in-laws & 3 grandchildren & lots of nieces & nephews. I enjoy walking, camping, reading, movies, travelling & a challenge! Hence going to Kenya & attempting to walk 42km!

I live & work in the county of Hertfordshire.

I have always enjoyed sport & the outdoors & saw this as an opportunity to meet my sponsored children amidst the security of being part of a group. To be able to take part in activities with the children & to do practical things as required.

While there, I will meet my sponsored children as well as lots of other children & families. To also enjoy time with the rest of the team.

All the best Tess! It's an inspiring step (or many steps) you're taking and I trust that Jesus will bless your commitment and boldness. "How beautiful on the mountaintops are the feet of those who bring good news."

This sounds a bit more challenging than covering library books as we did in Kenya, Tess! (Amongst other things, of course). Wishing you all the best for the challenge - buy some comfy shoes! Hope you meet some nice people for the event. Love Sue and John xx
