Thank you so much to Gullane Flower Club for having our trustee, Clare, along to their demonstration last night to talk about Kipawa’s work and to sell our lovely Christmas cards. We really appreciate the generous support. And she loved seeing the beautiful finished flower arrangements!
Our newest trustee, Clare Jones, will be visiting Kenya later this month to meet with out locally-based partners and see the work that Kipawa has been funding this year. This will be Clare's first visit to Mukuya School and to Kenya and she is very excited to experience for herself the important work Kipawa is doing there.
Once again, our good friend, Lindsay Given, has been collecting good quality, used, children's shoes in Richmond, Surrey and we are delighted to be taking over 300 pairs with us this year! We have also asked what other gifts we might take with us and have been told that reading books, sports and art materials and clothes for the children would be much appreciated. So, we've set up a Virgin Money Giving page specifically for this, and any donation you can make, however small or large, will be spent in Kenya to provide some of these useful supplies on our trip.
The link the the donation page is below. Please contact us if you would like any more information about this trip. And watch this space for updates, photos and news from the visit.
We are delighted to introduce the newest member of the Kipawa team, Clare Jones. Clare will be responsible for our website and much of our Facebook and Twitter communications. She is very much looking forward to visiting Kenya for the first time next year.
