Iain Park has once again organised a Bridge tournament on behalf of HHI. This popular event has been organised with the SFHHI - Strathaven Friends of HHI. It is always a well-supported event and raises qhuite a considerable amount for our work in India and Zambia. There are several pictures of the evening and you can view them in the gallery.
We invite you to our Spring Supporters Evening taking place this year at Summerhill Baptist Church, Albert Avenue, Maindee in Newport, NP19 8FT. This is an opportunity for our supporters to hear news from Zambia and particularly from a recent visit to India . It gives all a chance to join in worship and thanksgiving for our work and an opportunty to share stories and questions during an excellent buffet. Please come along - you will not be disappointed
Congratulations to Jute and Esther who succeeded in running the marathon - joined by Clifton from Stow Park Church. This is Esther looking like she enjoyed the run - a picture of Jute and Clifton is in the gallery.
Here is Jute's account of the day and the purpose of this fund raising - well done all three of you from HHI...
WE DID IT!! Don't ask me how but we ran all the way even though the pictures look as if we are not. They were taken at the very end when legs were just about functioning. I speak for myself here and not for Clifton who remained buoyant all the way through! It took us about 5hrs 40mins - not exactly Olympic time but Esther finished slightly ahead of us. I am pleased we completed it. We would like to thank each and everyone of you for your generous donations and support. With gift aid we will have reached our target and it will mean that one young Zambian girl and her vulnerable family will be helped by HHI to face the challenges which lie ahead.
The whole experience has been tremendous - even though my body didn't function the day after the run! Thank you most sincerely from us all for your sponsorship and encouraging comments.
Clifton, Esther and Jute
Josh, a nephew of one of our Trustees, visited Zambia in 2012. He enjoyed what turned out to be a very different experience to what he is used to. Josh wanted to see first hand the work HHI does in Zambia and he there was plenty of opportunity. He went to Gwembe Village; Muumba school, Choonga hammer mill and shop, Monze Hospital and many other places. It is fitting that this photograph is Josh with Esther meeting some young children. Esther is running with her Mum, Jute, to raise funds too - Jute is also using just giving - read her article about Victoria.
Josh was moved by his experienced and promised he would do something to raise funds - and here it is. Josh will be running the Chester half marathon for HHI and if you can help him please go to his just giving web page.
