Celebrating 20 years of our work in Kenya
On Saturday 30th September we celebrated our link with Kenya with a service of thanksgiving at Littlehampton United Church.
The service was led by our Trustees; Carol recounted how it all began and described some of the early visits to Mombasa. Dan, speaking as one of the people who joined those early expeditions, entertained us with anecdotes of those visits. We were treated to video clips of the students at Unity School and joined in with their singing. Ben Scrivens, who has also visited Unity School from the early days, looked to the future and his role of Chair which he takes up in January 2024.
The service was attended by The Mayor of Littlehampton, Cllr Fred Tandy, who congratulated the Trustees on their success. The service was followed by refreshments and an opportunity to see an exhibition of pictures of 20 years of work.
This summer has not been the best for outdoor fundraising activities. Broadwater Carnival ended early as the wind and rain swept across the Green. Our stall at the Worthing Lions Sea Front Fair was abandoned before the event due to the weather again. Finally we also cancelled our stall in Littlehampton Market. The better news is that our next two events are indoors. On Saturday 4th November we will be at a Table Sale and on the weekend 24th and 25th November we have our Christmas Sale, again at Littlehampton United Church with their Crib and Tree Festival.
