Fund raiser: October 21st
People came and had a great time. “Out of the Shadows” provided excellent entertainment for us. Between donations and the raffle we have raised just over £1000 for our work in Africa. That will go mainly to building the first of the final three classrooms to finish the school.
Thanks to Mark Greenway, catering and John chairman of the centre for fabulous food and the free use of the room.

Developments at the school needing funding in the coming months… years…
- funding the building of another classroom – we have a preschool and grades 1 to 8 but only 6 classrooms. As the school works towards sustainability we will look at increasing the number of children we help from the present 200 up towards the 260 mark. The first stage is adding the accommodation.
- Work has started on the 1st of these classrooms.

- complete the purchase of additional land.
- consider building staff accommodation on site which will return a sustainable rental income. The staff currently rent accommodation off site from private landlords
We have now booked Friday evening the 10th November 2017 at the Ambleside club.
