Picnic outing to the Lord Egerton Castle in Ngata farm Njoro near Nakuru

Picnic outing to the Lord Egerton Castle in Ngata farm Njoro near Nakuru

On Saturday the 31st of March 2012, all the Centre children were taken on a picnic tour to the Lord Egerton Castle in Ngata farm Njoro near Nakuru. The 52 roomed Castle was buillt by Lord Egerton from 1928 – 1938 (Builders were Red Indians from US, the stones, marbles and furniture from UK) for his Fiancee who when she saw it, said she could not live in such a small house like a nest and broke the engagment. Lord Egerton never married and ordered that no woman or dog should ever step in the Castle. A 62 seater school bus from Molo Secondary was hired and all the children, some of whom have never been outside the Centre except to the hospital attended. The children were accompanied by staff members, Catalina (Physiotherapist and hostel Manager), Jimmy, Dr. Bob (Peadtrician volunteer at Molo district hospital) & Chris Saunders (visiting sponsor). The function was funded by Catalina and Jimmy. The children had a great time, enjoyed themselves and were very happy. ( Thanks to Cata & Jimmy)
