Charity Book Fair

♦ By Webmaster ♦ Posted in EventsNo Comments on Charity Book Fair

Day: Sunday 12th May 2013
Time: 2 – 5 pm
Place: St Giles’ Church, Church Lane, Stoke Poges, SL2 2LX

Thousands of books have been collected for this special charity book sale. Don’t miss out.

During the afternoon, the beautiful church of St Giles’ will be open to visitors and cream teas will be served by church members. If the weather allows, there will also be a bouncy castle for the less bookish and more energetic.

Tell your friends and come along!

We are selling donated books to feed children living in a slum area of the Kenyan Rift Valley. Any funds raised will go to feed children through the charity: Deserving Children Africa

About the charity
(From Charlie Styles, one of the trustees)
Deserving Children Africa sprang from the vision to meet a desperate need. One of our founding trustees, Salome, who now lives in Stoke Poges grew up in Kenya. On a visit to her old school a couple of years ago, she heard about how children would faint during the school day because they had not eaten. She later discovered the lengths that these children – particularly little girls – would have to go to in order to earn money for food.

She developed a relationship with an NGO working nearby that would feed the children a daily meal for only £3 per month and started giving money so that some could be fed. We have since formed ourselves as a charitable company and seek to raise funds and find sponsors to feed these children.

The head teacher of the school estimates that 500 of his pupils do not eat daily and so 500 is our target. We are still some way off, but every £3 is another child fed for a month, another little girl off the streets and a contribution towards an education that will help these children change their lives.

More information about the charity can be found at www.deservingchildrenafrica.org.
