The 'Frugal Ball' in aid of the Kanyike Project - a glamorous event. But everyone had to wear something they'd bought from a charity shop. Money was raised for Kanyike and none wasted on buying expensive new clothes for the occasion. And other charities benefitted too. A win-win situation!
Carrying pails of water on a six mile sponsored 'Walk in Wellies for Water' enabled children from St. Christopher’s School to experience (if only in a small way) the reality of life in Kanyike for children their age. There, children have to do this every day to meet their most basic needs.
Victoria Kennington, Headmistress at St Christopher's School, Staverton, ran a marathon to raise money. "It was my first ever marathon, and took place in Llanelli on a beautiful Spring day. It took me a little over 5 hours to complete - slower than I had hoped - because I tore a calf muscle after 4 miles. The course was two laps of a 13 miles along the millennium cycle path, (totally flat, thank goodness), and I was cheered on all the way by my husband, three children and parents. I was delighted to raise the money for Magejjo School and very thankful to all those who sponsored me, especially the parents and children at St Christopher’s."
St Hugh's Parish, Letchworth, held a Supper Concert with a varied programme of music for piano, voice, harp and flute. Father Kakuba was there (as he was on his regular fund-raising visit).
An Afternoon Tea is an easy way to raise money. People can enjoy tea, chat away merrily to the strains of gentle summer music whilst raising money through a raffle and sale of goods made by the pupils and women of Kanyike. (St Hugh's Parish, Letchworth.)
A Harvest Festival at St Paul de Leon Church in Devon. Year 6 led the service with readings about the origins of harvest celebrations. The choir sang Rutter's arrangment of “All things bright and beautiful” and the lower school re-enacted the story of the Little Red Hen.
All the children brought a harvest gift, which was sold at the end of the service and the proceeds were donated to Kanyike.
