I am writing on behalf of the trustees of Serian UK to thank those people who attended our recent exhibition in the Old Fire Station Gallery. Everyone was impressed with Bob Webzell’s stunning images (www.webzell.co.uk) presented with the ‘Africa Proud’ poem written by Wayne Visser (www.waynevisser.com). Serian UK is a Henley-based charity whose mission is to support intercultural education for sustainable ways of living through education.
The costs of staging the exhibition were gratefully supported by Rathbones Investments and Simmons and Sons so all proceeds will go to Noonkodin Secondary School in Northern Tanzania. A school that has been funded by Serian UK but is managed by the Maasai and serves Maasai communities in this remote region of Tanzania.
The generosity shown by visitors and friends contributed to a total raised of £1760. To give readers an idea of the significance of this money, there is no free secondary education in Tanzania. The charity’s current focus is to secure sponsorship for more students whose families live at subsistence level and for whom secondary education is not possible.
If any readers would like more information about the charity then do look at the web site: www.serianuk.org.uk or contact chair of trustees, Janine FitzGerald on 07980 773356 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you missed the exhibition and would like to see some of the images then do go to Bob Webzell’s website, www.webzell.co.uk , then ‘photography’, ‘exhibitions’, ‘2015’. Hard copies of the images are available. Please contact Dave McEwen on 07703 102688 or email@example.com for more details.
Best Wishes to your readers for a peaceful and fulfilling 2016.
Treasurer, Serian UK
