Dwelling Places Fundraiser

With the current restrictions in place, traditional fundraising events have become very difficult. One of local charities that have felt this pinch is Dwelling Places which operate from Kampala, Uganda, who help rescue children living on the streets. As the usual coffee mornings and fund raising lunches are not an option at present, a Just Giving page has been set up to raise funds for Dwelling Places.

The Gambia Partnership

The Gambia Partnership is looking for people to help support their work by sponsoring some young people from the village of Kabekel to attend college. It would cost £20 per month/£250 per year which works out at 68p per day. This small amount of money can truly change lives, not just for the students but for their extended families as well. Education is so precious in The Gambia and families struggle to afford college fees, some parents even forego medical treatment to allow their children to further their careers and have better opportunities in life. If you think that you could help, either as an individual or as a group please email Karen France or telephone 703066. For more information visit their website or Facebook page.
