Kevin and I have been supporters of CPA for over twenty years and on my first visit to Uganda, one of the things I had hoped for was that I might have opportunity to meet Bob Trubish who was the first ‘child’ we supported many years ago, when he was living with his siblings at Komamboga Children’s Home.

One of the things we’ve loved to be involved with is the sponsorship initiative. It has always been great to support and watch a child blossom into adulthood and know that in a small way you have been a part of their journey. Although we have and will continue to support different children, Bob was our first, so the opportunity to meet him was always going to be a bit special.

Over the years we have loved watching Bob achieve so much and we were so proud when he completed University and went on to have a successful career. So I was really excited when I had the opportunity to meet him at his home in Kampala. It was wonderful to talk about our lives, to reminisce and to chat about what he is doing now. Sadly, I could not persuade Bob that he had chosen the wrong football team all those years ago and there was no swapping him from Chelsea to Manchester United!
