A FANTASTIC £700 was raised for charity at Tealby Village Hall.
The money will be used by Across Lines to help orphaned children in Bugiri Uganda.
The charity, which was set up by a group of De Aston School staff, completely rebuilt and refurbished the children’s home and the children now have beds in which to sleep and are fully protected with mosquito nets.
The money raised at the quiz will now fund beds and nets for the staff and a meat meal for the children, as well as protecting the recently refurbished well.
Across Lines’ next project is to build a community hospital in Kayunga after charity trustee John Scarborough recently visited Uganda and identified the need for a clinic in this area.
There has been a recent tragic case where a mother died giving birth to a child. Work has already begun on the footings and there are plans to drill a borehole to secure water supplies. The hospital project has been costed at £16,000.
The charity’s next fund raising venture is a four–mile post Christmas walk in Tealby- meeting in the King’s Head car park at 10.30am on Thursday, December 29. Everyone is welcome and the suggested donation is £10.
Across Lines is a registered charity and every penny raised is spent on projects in Uganda.
Anyone who would like to make a donation – large or small – can contact Sue Tubman through De Aston School on 01673 843415.
