As we get closer to leaving for Zambia, it’s been great to have some publicity about our work so far. This year we’ve linked to a local primary school, Lawhead, and they’ve been a tremendous support. The primary 5/6 teacher, Miss Johnstone, has shared teaching tips with the team and her class have learned about Zambia, written letters for the pupils in Kazemba, collected books and shoes, and helped significantly with our fundraising efforts. STV news featured a story about our partnership.
Here are the pupils handing over a cheque for the fantastic sum of £559.43. They raised the money through holding an after-school club bake sale, and a sponsored electricity-free day. The local newspaper also featured the story: http://www.fifetoday.co.uk/news/local-headlines/pupils-highlight-work-with-zambian-village-1-4137674
