A good time was had by all at the third Meru lunch held at my house on October 20. Participants ranged in age from 1 to 89 and were greeted by two cheerful ‘doormen’ (my grandsons) aged 4 and 7 who helped to raise £718 for the benefit of needy women and children in rural Kenya.
If the political situation in Kenya is stable following the October election, Margaret Duffy and I hope to travel there in February. Meantime a big ‘thank you’ to all our supporters who either enjoyed the soup and sandwiches or gave generously of raffle prizes and financial donations. Rev Elijah Mwrigi, Silas Kinoti Mboroki and Mercy join with me in wishing you and yours the blessings of Christmas.
There will be a Meru stall at the church Christmas Fair, with Grove pupils selling hand-made jewellery and a variety of other African goods, plus the chance to win a fabulous Christmas reindeer! Sheila McLuckie
