Last year we raised money to send hygiene and other supplies to Mr Bah, Deputy Director of Education in Tonkolili District, Sierra Leone. Mr Bah distributed the supplies to eight different schools in his district and writes to say:

“I’m very sorry for the long silence. We have been very busy training teachers on Social Mobilization and Psychosocial Care, including the use of chlorine and Infra-red thermometers provided to all educational institutions for Ebola Virus disease prevention.

Here are photos of Mrs. Isatu Marvis Bangura and her school (R.C. Primary School for Girls, Magburaka), before and after rehabilitation.

We’re grateful to God for sparing our lives and we thank you very much for your contribution to the fight against the dreadful Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) that has claimed the lives of nearly 4,000 of our compatriots.

May the Lord bless you and all those that contributed for the shipment of those materials.”

  







Update December 2014:

The hygiene supplies and toys for St Joseph’s Primary School in Sierra Leone have now been sent. We would like to say a huge thank you to Mount Aureol Freight Services for their generous subsidy towards the cost of packing and shipping the items.

Love, Care, Share

Staff members have raised money to send to our Link School, St Joseph’s, in Sierra Leone. Mr Silva, who visited the school in 2011, has been in contact with Mr Bah, the Director of Education for Magburaka, and was so moved by the problems that the school is facing during the current Ebola crisis that he organised a whip-round. We have bought hygiene supplies and small toys for the children which should get to Sierra Leone by Christmas.

Mr Bah has texted the following message to Mr Silva:

“It’s very kind of you to send us a gift during this moment of grief and despair. May the Good Lord richly bless you.”




​We were thrilled to be joined by fourteen members of the Royal British Legion from Leytonstone, Chingford and Romford for our Remembrance Day Assemblies. Three standard bearers marched in to open the assemblies which were led by some children from Year 2 and Year 6. The highlight was meeting 96-year old Mr Bill Allen, a World War 2 veteran of the Royal Berkshire Infantry Regiment who was Field Marshal Montgomery's personal bodyguard. Some of the members spoke about the Royal British Legion and their Chaplain ended the assemblies with a prayer. Mr Ray Gross, Secretary of the Leytonstone Royal British Legion, wrote: "What a wonderful afternoon we had at the school on Friday. It was a pleasure for us all to attend. You should be very proud of all the pupils, they are so delightful to be with."


Bill Allen also wrote to thank us: "May I thank you most sincerely for your invitation - it was a day I shall remember for the rest of my life. The attention they gave us was wonderful to see and my congratulations go to those students who recited the poems and prayers which are recalled every Remembrance Day."


Well done to all the children for taking part in the Sierra Leone fundraising event. All the pupils took part with great enthusiasm and enjoyed the fitness sessions led by Mr and Mrs Gambling from LRG Fitness. The children's contributions will go to buying and sending school stationery equipment for a school in Sierra Leone, which has just been built for some of the orphans of Ebola." 


Sierra Leone Fundraising Event

Thank you to all the children who took part in the fitness fundraiser (led by LRG Fitness) for the orphanage school in Sierra Leone. With the money raised we bought a variety of resources to help the new school. Thank you to Mount Aureol Shipping for their generous offer of free shipping to Sierra Leone and a special mention to Mrs Wyse and Mrs Fah-Bundeh for helping to organise the equipment.
