I trust you are well and enjoying the sunshine.
In my ‘spare’ time I am Chair of the Trustees of a very small charity called The Loiyangalani Trust, which helps a large primary chool and some children to go through secondary education, in a remote part of north west Kenya. See our website at www.loiyangalanitrust.org.uk
We are holding a fundraising event at Bluebell Vineyard Estates on the 8th July (I happen to know the owners) and will be having wine and cheese tasting, vineyard tours and a ploughman’s lunch, all in aid of our charity. I attach a flyer with full info.
If not through the ‘official’ channels of BHBPA, if there is any way you can forward it to a few people who might be interested in coming along that would be great and it would of course be great to see you there.
Look forward to catching up soon,
