Tickets are £7 and are available from Pat Starr: Telephone 01296 613430, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
So enjoy a great afternoon whilst helping the Karibuni Trust in its mission to help youngsters from the streets and slums of Kenya. As well as continuing their 14 projects there, the trust has recently promoted the idea of supporting their older children into university, college and vocational training, through individual sponsorship from supporters. They are delighted that the first students from three different projects have already found sponsors. Of course,their aim is to support all the young people through Karibuni, but it is great that they have found this additional sponsorship. All these fund-raising events help to support more young children into education.
