PAGEANT - "Education is the future"

Meet Omar Day

home > news > Pageant news page

Omar Janneh, Science Co-ordinator from Sinchu Baliya Lower Basic School, is visiting the UK this summer. On Sunday 9 July, Pageant organised a 'Meet Omar' day in Southwater. We had a very enjoyable day, despite the rain in the morning that meant we had to start of the proceeding inside. However, the sun came out just as we were serving lunch, so most people managed to eat and spend the rest of the afternoon in the garden. Our special thanks go to Andrew Groves who did all the catering this time, Pippa being out of action due to her broken ankle for the time being.

One of the visitors was Chris Lawler of the Ibrakeforcake team, taking part in the 2007 Plymouth-Banjul Challenge. Read his description of the day on the Ibrakeforcake page. Kemo was also able to visit us, and  emailed us later to say:

"Thanks once again for a well organised Pageant Day and I have enjoyed it so much with my favourite shepherd's pie, so please send my thanks to Andrew and please say to all of the members that I am pleased to meet them and grateful on behalf of all the sponsored children. May God protect and guide you all."

Omar really enjoyed his day - he said it was wonderful to meet so many peoples who were concerned to help his country and he found everyone so friendly and welcoming to him.
