AN IMPRESSIVE £577.71 has so far been raised from a ladies evening Mission Morogoro charity at a ladies evening held at the Jinney Ring Craft Centre in Hanbury on November 16.

The event featured an evening of entertainment and relaxation, including Traidcraft stalls, a raffle and presentations by The Blue Lemon, base at the Jinney Ring, and Jane Brook from ‘The House of Colour’. She gave a speech and a practical demonstration of how to use clothing accessories.

The cash raised will support the Berega Hospital and its clinics in Tanzania, which are in desperate need of supplies, equipment and support.

One of Mission Morogoro's major projects - lighting for wards at the Tunguli Clinic - has been successfully completed.

The organisers thanked everyone who supported the event and said many guests complimented the night and asked for another next year.

Those wanting to donate or buy a ‘Mission Morogoro’ 2013 calendar should call Judith Burman on 01527 821443 or Anne Matthews on 01527 892180.

Those wanting updates on the Berega Hospital's progress can e-mail Tony Mortimer at tonygmg@gmail.com
