Pageant news 25 September 2011

Pageant has just received two unexpected donations:


MOFEST is an annual music festival, which takes place every August at Coneyhurst, West Sussex, in a field adjacent to Tim & Deb’s barn, where we store stuff and load it for shipping to The Gambia. After this year's festival on Saturday 13 August, we received a donation of £400 after Deb had suggested that £1 from everyone’s entry ticket payment should go to Pageant.

Spalding High School

Spalding High School, is located in Stonegate, near Spalding in Lincolnshire. The 2001-11 Lower 6th Form created a Young Enterprise Company called ‘Treasured’, selling hand-made treasures such as photo frames and memory boxes. They got through to the county final at Lincoln and finished the competition with a total of four awards. (see this web page for more details) We have just received a donation of £200 from the Managing Director of ‘Treasured’, Charlotte Smith. She was in The Gambia with her family at the same time as Pippa and Ian in April 2011 and came to Kings Kid Academy to help with art and science workshops for the children there.

We were delighted with both these donations, ‘specially as they were completely unexpected!
