£24,000 Marathon


As a result of our fundraising efforts we were able to present a cheque for more than £24,000 to the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation at the 2015 SKE Championships.

Foundation Official, Iyabo Oba was there to receive the cheque and present the Certificate for a new World Record where 200 students and instructors completed 11,700 Shotokan Kata in 3 hours on 10th May 2015.

The Championships themselves were an even greater success than last year with even more students taking part and more categories and events.
Our thanks go to all parents, scorekeepers and judges who did such a marvellous job on the day. Well done everyone.

Roy Castle ‘Katathon’

We have raised well in excess of £20,000 for the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation. This is a remarkable achievement by any standards and it is doubtful in any other group of Karate Clubs has ever raised so very much. I congratulate all of the SKE members, parents, helpers and visitors from other associations, who made this day such a fine tribute to our beloved and sadly missed member, Liz Lafbury.
