The Nasio Trust is celebrating its fifteenth anniversary this year. Jonathan Hunt, a representative of the charity visited the Junior School to talk in assembly. He gave an excellent talk about how the charity provides food and education for orphans in Kenya. The recent raffle of fifteen teddy bears, raised £138.50, and the children also collected coins in little boxes to help provide medication to protect the children from Malaria. The coins amounted to a staggering £606.50! A large cheque for £745 was presented to Mr Hunt.
We are also very grateful to Mrs Daphne Smith who knitted many hats and sewed book bags for the orphans. In addition, the children filled individual gift bags with little treats for the Nasio children. All these gifts will be sent abroad in time for Christmas. We have a long-standing connection with this charity and have watched it develop over the past fifteen years. We know that our gifts are much valued. We would like to congratulate the charity on their ongoing success and their dedication to improving children’s lives. Thank you also to Cokethorpe parents and to the children for their continued support.
