‘In our Dean Close community, we see it as a privilege to share what we have with our Ugandan friends. We therefore seek to put on termly events to raise funds. Primarily, this happens through the ‘Uganda Group’, which meets weekly to plan and organise the fundraisers. It is incredible to see that whether it’s a big fashion show or a simple bake sale, the school community are willing to support and the donations that reach our link school really do make a difference. In the past we have contributed towards building classrooms, dormitories and a laboratory, and buying books, science equipment and sports equipment. Every penny counts!’
Last year the Uganda Group staged a successful dinner for Uganda Link supporters, as well as cake sales and mufti days. The Uganda Group of 2018/2019 are now working on a Golf Day in March and some events around Commemoration.
If you would like to make a donation to the Dean Close Uganda Appeal, or attend one of our events, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com – we would love to hear from you!
