Hope for Tanzania

Trustees promote charity at Duffield carnival

Published 03 July 2010

Hope for Tanzania had a stall at the village carnival in Duffield, Derbyshire on 26 June. Four of the Trustees live in the village and took the opportunity to show case the work of the charity in Tanzania. Whilst we didn't intend to fundraise on the day, people were generous and some donations were made. However, our main objectives were to chat to people about our projects, to raise awareness of the needs of Tanzania and to encourage people to become involved in the work. We used a quiz to start discussions, which can be found on the website in the Tanzania section. People entered into the spirit of the day and enjoyed the "bucket carrying on the head" game we played. We hope that some of the people we chatted to will volunteer to become sponsors of children at Tuishime School. The weather was also kind to us.
