Charity Coffee Morning 7th April

coffee-morning-104Friday 7th April, 10.30am to 12 noon at The Narth Hall.

The Narth Village Hall is hosting a coffee morning in aid of The Ugandan Child Development Fund for local people to drop in and socialise with friends and neighbours while making money for a good cause.

The UCDF is a Christian charity (no 1016099) registered in 1992 by Narth residents Kate and Rev Phil Rees to rescue children (orphaned through war in Uganda) from destitution and severe poverty. After the war another massive number of children became orphaned through Aids and so the work of rescuing lost children continues.

Another key aim of the charity is to prepare these children for the world of work so that the cycle of poverty can be broken and give them hope for a brighter future.

Over 90% of the money raised by the charity goes directly to save the children as no UK Staff are paid and all visits to Uganda are self financed.

The coffee morning is hosted by Jane Brackstone and Sylvia Curphey and they would be very grateful for donations of cakes or raffle prizes.  They can be contacted on;

  • 860371 – Sylvia
  • 860422 – Jane

There is more information on the UCDF in their annual report on the Charity Commission web site. (pdf file opens in separate window/tab)
