I would like to thank Deby Atkinson of Paca and Mary Wright, a trustee of AVIF, for organising a fantastic fundraising event last night in Harrogate.

Mary (right), who a few hours later jetted off to Armenia with A2HW.org.uk, was helping us raise money towards the shipping costs of sending an entire container-full of surgical and hospital equipment, sourced from UK hospitals by A2HW to the Arrowweb Community Hospital in the slum area of Kayole, Nairobi. A2HW recycle equipment from UK hospitals and send them all over the developing world.

On offer to the fundraisers were a wide range of cosmetic products and advice; make overs, nail treatments, Colouring advice. Ladies were literally queueing for a pampering and even invited back for a more leisurely appointment at Paca.

Asante sana to everyone who attended.
