Helping others to help themselves.
The on-going local donations collection has "gone missing".
Sadly, Dance2Learn have to announce that the near-full collecting pot on the bar at The Friendly Fox in Bassaleg, Newport, was found in a store room behind the counter, empty.
We had been hoping that someone may have emptied it for safe-keeping before removing it from the counter top during the previous week but it now transpires that none of the staff have any knowledge of it.
We requested a chat with the manager but he was, unfortunately, too busy to talk to us.
An estimated £20 - £50 were taken, We can only hope that whoever took the money was as much in need as the people we try to help in Gambia.
Update from Wakawaka:
"As a social enterprise determined to find ways to share the abundant power of the sun with the billions worldwide who don’t have the luxury of a light switch, we are immensely proud to announce that we have now helped bring light and power to more than 1,000,000 people living without access to electricity. One million women, men and children are living healthier, safer lives, and are more empowered to realize their potential.
We are looking forward to the next milestone.
