A little charity goes a long way

In fact it goes to Lewisham & Sierra Leone

 

Times are hard both here and around the world. At Heavenly Central we help 2 charities by donating cash and cakes (well, to be honest we’re not sending cakes to Sierra Leone just yet – but if we do we will be sure to share pictures with you).

We Care Community Hub is a foodbank local to our bakery, so when we can we donate cakes and cookies to them.

In Sierra Leone there is a village that until recently didn’t have a school. This project has built a school from scratch and was originally funded by two very special individuals. You can read more about it here.

Feeding Lewisham food banks

Mabomboh Education Project is a non-fee-paying nursery and primary school built in a small farming village in Sierra Leone by Evelyn and Iain Maclean. The school was established in January 2021 after village elders approached Evelyn’s father looking for support in providing education to the children in the village. With your support and help, the project aims to promote education in this community and change their lives for generations to come. The Mabomboh Community Nursery and Primary School opened its doors in January 2021 to its first intake of children. By August 2021, the Mabomboh Community Project GoFundMe goal of £10,000 was reached, which helped in completing the manufacture of classroom chairs and tables, providing school uniforms, building toilets, and installing solar panelling at the school that can also be accessed by the villagers
