Axminster Catenians help African children
Catholic group presents �373 to Chard Project Zimbabwe which supports disadvantaged children there
Needy youngsters in Africa got a helping hand from Axminster Catenians last week.
Past President Peter Westoby presented a cheque for �373.20, from his charity fund, to Stephen Zenda, co-ordinator for the Chard Project Zimbabwe (CPZ).
The scheme supports the educational needs for disadvantaged children there.
Accepting the money, Mr Zenda said: “The funds will go a long way towards supporting some of the poor children in Zimbabwe who are victims of years of political and economical instability. I would like to thank my fellow Axminster Catenians for the continued support of CPZ and look forward to extending my appeals to other circles in the near future.”
Mr Zenda can be contacted on 01460 66793 or via e mail at email@example.com and donations can also be sent direct to Chard Project Zimbabwe, Charitable Aid Foundation, Account No 56049746, 25 Kings Hill Avenue, Kings Hill, West Malling, Kent, ME19 4TA
