TWOAT News – February 2019

Children being treated for the Jigger Flea parasite in Kenya

TWOAT would like to thank all those that contributed to their Christmas Appeal. Donations and events over the Christmas period raised well over £2,000 so they are in a position to fund the establishment of the Epilepsy Clinic at Berega Hospital in Tanzania as well as continuing to support health camps in Kenya to treat children and adults against the Jigger Flea parasite. With respect to the clinic, a training facility has been found in a hospital near Kilimanjaro so the next task is to recruit a suitable nurse to undergo the training and become the Epilepsy Outreach Worker.

 

Dates for the next TWOAT events are as follows:

Quiz Evening at Christchurch Hall, Walton, doors open at 7.15pm, Saturday March 2nd, admission £10 to include a light buffet. Come on your own or in teams of up to 8.

Incredible India – 2 events both on Saturday March 30th in St John’s Hall giving an opportunity to hear about a project supported by TWOAT. The first from 3pm to 5pm is Tiffin and is priced at £5 to include afternoon tea and the second, A Taste of India, admission £10 (children £5) to include an array of delicious curries as well as some non-spicy fare.

Sponsored Walks – TWOAT’s two 10-mile sponsored walks will take place on Friday May 31st and Saturday June 8th and will be centred on Brockham.

In addition TWOAT will be having their Annual Street Collection on dates to be confirmed in late April or early May and their usual Bottle Stall at the Walton May Fayre on Saturday May 18th.
