Quiz for Kenya is heading your way
Today’s blog post has been submitted by Bethany Dunn-Wilson, who’s up to some very important fund raising during her gap year:
Uneeka is my favourite shop of all time. Not only because their products are fair trade and beautiful, but because the lovely people there have agreed to support me in a fund raiser.
My name’s Beth. I’m on my gap year, which is nearing it’s end and my final trip is to Kenya. I am going to work with a charity called the African Children’s Choir. This is a charity which works with children in poverty through various projects, the main one being a world touring children’s choir. I will be supporting their work by completing a relief and development course with them in June 2011, which will involve working in poverty stricken communities.
As you can imagine this is an opportunity of a lifetime but a very expensive one! Uneeka have donated a gift to me which will be up for grabs in a raffle – I am holding a ‘Quiz for Kenya’ event on 27th May, 7.30pm at The Carnon Inn, Carnon Downs, Truro. All are welcome, teams should be about 6/7 people and it’s £5 entry per person. Not only is it going to be a great night but your much appreciated monies will be supporting a very worthwhile cause.
I wish to offer a huge thank you to all the staff at Uneeka for their donation. They are really very lovely people selling some very lovely things. (I should know – my bedroom is practically their shop!)
Buying fair trade makes a massive difference, one little step at a time, so please continue to support the work of this fantastic, life-changing shop.
There’s a Facebook event page for the Quiz for Kenya should you want to show interest in signing up for the quiz. And good luck to all who enter.
