Held at Mill House, Hoath, at
the home of the Secretary General of the Commonwealth Local Government Forum,
Carl Wright, and his wife Adele, a party afternoon of moo-sic and dance” has
raised £2500 towards a target figure of £3000 in aid of Ugandan War Widows in
the Bukara co-operative.
Carl and Adele have said:
On a recent trip to the
majesty of the North Ugandan countryside we were struck by the stark poverty
faced by many. Years of war and disease have left behind widows and fatherless
children fighting for survival. For any one of the widows that we met a cow
could offer her freedom by providing nutrition for her and her family. We are raising
the money – each animal costs £350 – to buy a small herd of cows so that
several families can become self-sufficient”.
