A church in Attleborough will be hosting a charity event to raise money for Ugandan orphans.
Sylvia Webster began organising fundraisers for the Uganda Orphans Fund after her daughter moved to the country and witnessed first-hand the suffering of children in the poverty stricken nation.
The next fundraising event, at St. Mary’s Church in Church Street Attleborough, will offer visitors the chance to peruse stalls in hunt for a bargain, take part in a raffle tombola and enjoy coffee and cakes.
Stalls will vend African jewellery, as well as books, CDs and bric-a-brac.
All proceeds from the event will go towards the New Glory School in Jinja, Uganda. The towns sits on the edge of the River Nile and the school has recently had a toilet built, however, plenty of work still needs to be done.
The event will take place from 10am until 11.30am on Saturday December 9 in the church hall. Admission is free
