A big THANK YOU to everybody who so generously supported our fund-raising event last Saturday in aid of kids4school in Tanzania.

The car wash, run by our BB boys (and a few willing parents) was invaluable and between them they washed 38 cars – a fabulous effort – thank you! Lots of shiny cars around Parkgate on Saturday afternoon!

Inside the hall, the turnout for our coffee morning far exceeded our expectations. Along with coffee/tea etc we served an array of home-baked scones, buns and tray-bakes, which had been kindly supplied by members of the Church and community. There were also stalls with crafts, cakes and secondhand books – all kindly donated by the congregation and the community. There was a great buzz about the place and the spirit of the community shone through – how blessed we are!

Due to your kind donations, we will be able to buy materials needed to replace pipes and spouting etc. When the rains do eventually come to Tanzania, the much-needed water can then be safely collected into the purpose-built water storage tanks, enabling children to have access to clean drinking water.
