Namibia Links

We are very proud of our longstanding link with Namibia which continues to flourish.

A visit took place in July and August 2017 by Rev. Caroline Tracey, her husband David and Cllr Richard Silvester. As a result of the recent Review of the Link the visit was of a fact finding nature as well as strengthening existing links and discussing new projects with our Namibian friends. Please see link to the visit report below.

The  projects have now been agreed and are as follows:

  • Solar Lamps to enable children to do homework;
  • building materials for a toilet block;
  • books for school libraries;
  • sewing machines for schools to teach young people new skills and increase their employment prospects. 

You can support any of these projects by donation or by purchasing an appropriate gift card as a birthday, anniversary, Mothering Sunday or Christmas present for someone. Please contact Margaret Broadfoot on 01204 690283 or email: mbroadfoot283@btinternet.com

Latest news - Rivington Church and St Elizabeth's Church have agreed to also support the Link. We look forward to working together with them to strengthen the Link.
