Fundraisers walk for Malawi

More than 130 people took part in a sponsored walk along Meia Praia, Lagos on May 1, organised by the St. Vincent’s Church Kids’ Club.

The event was arranged to raise funds to buy mosquito nets for children at the Sayere School in Malawi, situated in the parish of Anglican priest Father Mponda, a friend of Father Haynes of the St Vincent´s Church.

Participants covered either five or eight kilometres and 900 euros was raised for the fund, which now stands at 1,800 euros.

The children of the St. Vincent´s Church Kids’ Club are now trying to raise money to purchase sports equipment for the pupils at the Sayere School. 

If you would like to help with fundraising, donations can be sent directly to Father Haynes at St Vincent´s in Praia da Luz to be forwarded to Father Mponda.
