Class Contacts Easter breakfast...

We had a great time together yesterday and it gave me an opportunity to say thank you to everyone.

30 Class Contacts either rushed in and out grabbed a bite or came to stay and got to know each other better.

Thank you too for all your work to those who couldn’t make it.

Mansion Music - Sunday 10th May

A4 Poster May 2015

£459.61 raised today for Sangilo School, Malawi today!

On my first visit to Sangilo school I was surprised by how run down it was. It is in a rural, poor area, where most of the locals are fisherman or subsistence farmers, and it receives very low levels of government funding. Each classroom is an empty concrete building with a (horribly squeaky!) blackboard, sometimes with a few broken chairs or desks. Each child brings in a small, cheap jotter bought at market, and if they are lucky a pen. They have big classes who sit in rows, and mostly learn by chanting or writing out the teachers work.
There is a local NGO called 'Determined to Develop' who have agreed to take the money raised by our school and to channel it all to the school, through initiatives such as free lunches of nsima porridge for pupils, girls’ clubs, and resources like textbooks. They are a registered charity, experienced in the area, and very good at overseeing projects for the most efficient result.
I hope this gives a good overview of how our donation will be spent. Many thanks to everyone for choosing to
support this school.

Caitlin Arthur - Alumni - Jail Break Charity Event

Caitlin Arthur graduated from Michael Hall last year and is now a student at the University of East Anglia. She and a friend are raising money for Save the Children by taking part in an event called Jailbreak, the concept is that they have to get as far away from campus as possible in 48 hours with no money. They are trying to raise awareness of this project.

Their just giving page for Save the Children is https://www.justgiving.com/CashMeteors/

A Youtube video explaining the 'Jail Break' concept: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBIVU0t9wiI&list=UUNb2oplr2Y3jbgk0UA4iuTQ

Good luck with your venture Caitlin!
