Fundraising by the Alsager Inner Wheel group in 2019
Throughout the year, the ladies of Alsager Inner Wheel organised a series of fundraising events for their chosen charity of the year, Wamumbi Orphan Care! They raised a grand total of £1000, which we gratefully received in August and used to pay for 14 of our teenagers to continue their secondary school education.
08/05/2015 VE themed fundraising tea party
A tea party with cakes, donated goods, and a raffle, was held in Llandudno, North Wales, on Friday 8th May 2015. It was a fantastic afternoon that raised £400 for our work in Kenya! This has since been used to pay for emergency foodstuffs for six of our needy households.
13th March 2015 One World Gala
We collaborated with the International Education Centre at Bangor University to run a One World Gala talent show on Friday 13th March 2015 in PJ Hall, Main Arts Building, on College Road in Bangor, Wales. There was a fantastic array of international and national cultural performances by talented singers, musicians and dancers from the student population and wider community! Handmade jewellery and cakes were available with 100% of the proceeds going towards our work in Kenya. A couple of other stands were also there with a percentage of profits going to the charity, including locally made beeswax products from Anglesey. It was a fun family friendly evening!

This month we received a wonderful donation of solar lights from Jaguar Land Rover, enough for all our children and guardians. This will make a huge difference - it means the children can study in the evenings and other chores can be done much more easily after it gets dark.
