> Pageant at West Horsley WI
Frances and friends gave a talk to West Horsley WI about Pageant's
trip to The Gambia in April 2014.
This is a copy of the post Frances put on the Pageant Blog.
"Earlier this month, Rachel, Ellie and I were invited to give
a talk to the lovely ladies at West Horsley WI, to give them an
insight into Gambian life and explain all about our April PAGEANT
trip. We spoke at length about all our mornings spent in schools,
our trip up country and all the other Gambian adventures we
experienced! We managed to sell lots of Gambian artefacts and raise
enough money to sponsor Mama, a 13 year old girl, for two years.
Mama has been unable to attend school recently as her parents
haven't had the funding, however now she will be given the chance to
catch up with her peers which is fantastic! Huge thanks go to all
the ladies at the WI for having us and to Sue for arranging the
evening, we hope to see you again soon!"
