I would like to thank your newspaper for the interest shown in the Yatima Orphanage in Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania, which we support.Also, I would like to thank all those family and friends who supported the DVD presentation evening in Kilmington Village Hall to celebrate my birthday. Donations, together with sales of clothing from Africa and other African items, amounted to £413.10, which will be forwarded to their bank account in Dar-es-SalaamThe children in Classes 4 and 5 at Stockland School presented me with a cheque for £274.75 from their special fund-raising day in aid of Yatima, following a visit that I made to the school in April. That was magnificent and much appreciated. Thank you. We shall be letting the children at the orphanage know about their efforts.Our annual sale, in aid of the orphanage, in our garden at Wellmead, Kilmington, is planned for Thursday to Saturday, July 17, 18 and 19, and we shall be looking for bric-a -brac, books, etc to sell at that event. Telephone (01297) 33026, if you can help.Iris QuickKoceda Wellmead Kilmington
