We just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for your help with the marquee displays at this years Sausage Tree Party in the Park. I just couldn’t do it without you! Thanks to your help and support it was a hugely successful night and we managed to raise just over £23,000!
These funds will go towards supporting our ongoing yearly projects. As you may know each year Sausage Tree needs to find approximately £20,000 to continue our ongoing projects. This money goes towards supporting 1 primary school and a new secondary school called Jumbe Secondary, over 1700 pupils in total. It pays for books, school resources and 5 teachers salaries.
Covid has had an enormous impact in Zambia especially in the Mfuwe area. Many families are struggling to survive because tourism has up until recently been non existent and their income stream has totally dried up. It is slowing picking up but the impact it has had on the community out there has been huge.
These projects continue to run successfully thanks to the amazing help we have on the ground out in Zambia. Through really successful fundraising nights and generous donors we hope to raise more than we need at the end of each year. This then enables us to carry out other small building and renovation projects.
Where we believe Sausage Tree is often different from other charities, is that we are a small kitchen table charity; every penny goes directly to where it is needed. Small donations make a huge difference to us and don’t just get gobbled up in paying for running costs as with so many other larger charities. There are no admin costs or salaries.
