Wow, we’re off to Africa! John & Pam Tillett, Rob & Ruth Galvin, Norman & Janet Stokes, Sue Brush and David Spurdle are going to Bekoji in Ethiopia to volunteer our services to help disadvantaged children at the Bethany School and Bekoji Children's Home.
Our trip is going to be completely self funded, but as a group project we would like to raise funds for the development of a Multi-Sports Court (netball, basketball, five-a-side, tennis etc). The target figure is £8,000, some of which will also go to buy the materials for us to build beds to get some of these children off the mud floors at night.
Stand by Me is a local charity, based here in Hornchurch. It provides education, food, clothes and medical care for children around the world living in extreme poverty.
Thanks for your support, while you're in your warm comfortable bed this evening, please spare a thought for a child without one, and make a donation to this very worthy cause.
