On Thursday, 28th June, we enjoyed a lovely evening of 10th birthday celebrations in the beautiful garden at Pashley Manor in Ticehurst. Emma Ogilvie, one of our trustees, organsied a fantastic spread of delicious canapes and we were treated to a glass or two of chilled fizz! The garden looked truly stunning and we are enormously grateful that we were able to hold our celebrations in such a beautiful setting.
It was the perfect occasion to reflect on the achievements of the past 10 years and David gave a heartfelt speech about the real essence of our work. He started by expressing his gratitude to Claire Linden, who is stepping down as Chair of Trustees and presented her with a lovely dish. Claire has worked so hard for us for 7 years and we are enormously grateful for the huge amount of time, thought and love she has dedicated to Rwanda Aid. Thank you so much Claire!
David then went on to reflect on our achievements of the past 10 years, as well as talking about what lies ahead, and introduced ‘The Alivera Project’. This is going to be an extension of our work with disabled children, covering a much wider area. Our key aim is that young people with disabilities should be given care and inclusion in their homes, in their schools, in their workplaces and their communities. Alivera was such a special little girl. Although we weren’t in time to save her, we hope that her memory will live on through our work.
