‘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 regular events to raise funds. Primarily, this happens through the ‘Uganda Group’, which meets 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 Golf Day as well as cake sales and mufti days.
