Mounting Block

The mounting steps ouside the main (rear) entrance to the church is an asset that we ought to appreciate. It would be nice to enhance this with a planted trough.

It would be nice to find a stone or old clay container for this.

Is there anyone who has one they would be prepared to donate?

If so, please contact Valerie Whately on 01547 510681

    Martin and I cannot thank people enough for the fantastic support given last Saturday in aid of our Charity ‘Hand’s Up for Uganda’. We must admit that we were feeling anxious that there were not as many people present as we had hoped for, but what can we say………..all those present, entered into the evening with such good humour and spirit, making it a fabulous result all round.

    Just under £1,800 was raised

    With these funds now in place the following has been decided:
    To begin clearing the land for the new Kindergarten
    To make a further supply of bricks for the Kindergarten
    To clear land for the planting of vegetable crops, including, cabbage, tomatoes, green peppers, egg plants and water melons.Planting these now will see them being harvested in approximately 3 months time.
    I can’t even begin to explain to you what this is meaning to the people of Kisaabwa and to me and Martin. I am hoping that in my next newsletter I will be able to show you evidence of how people are already beginning to benefit from the farm project. The money raised from the auction is actually going towards the creation of a new farm specifically for the growing of the vegetables. At the moment the land has to be cleared but as soon as I have images of progress I will post them in a newsletter.

    So thank you so much for your promises and for buying the promises and for all the work behind the scenes. Thank you also to others that continue to raise funds for us in their own way. Every penny raised is appreciated.
