Visit to Uganda

On 8th October 2017 Rev'd. Kathleen will be going to Uganda to visit schools supported by the Northern Uganda Good Hope Foundation.

Parishoners from the Ministry Area have already donated some tea-towels and ladies handkerchiefs that Rev'd Kathleen will take with her. Other suppies for the schools and children can be bought while out in Uganda and in order to help raise the money for those supplies the collection from the Harvest Festival service and from the children's Harvest Festival service will be taken out to Uganda.

The Good Hope foundation also pays for and provides children at the schools with much needed meals.

If anyone would like to make a special donation for the children, cash and cheques can be given to Rev'd Kathleen or given at the collections for either of the Harvest Festival services.

The pictures below show some of the work carried out by the Good Hope foundation over the last 18 months. There is also a picture of the map of the schools in Uganda that Rev'd. Kathleen will be visiting. The full size version of the map can be seen in the parsih office at St. Peter's Church.Please ring first to make sure there is someone at the office.
