Going International with Rotary Clubs and coming right back to home…..

27 Jul

During our visit to Uganda in February 2014, Gareth and Dick visited the Rotary Club of Mbale to bring greetings from the Rotary Club of Frodsham and Helsby.

While they were there exchanging international greetings they met a lady who lives not a mile away from us here in Frodsham, Elizabeth Boardman. She works with the Africa Educational Trust to set up libraries in primary schools across Uganda.

As a result of this meeting she visited Butta Primary School and agreed to establish a library there. She heeded a minimum of 1,000 books to do this and we offered to help. We only had five weeks to collect them but were successful with the help of local primary schools and churches around Frodsham. The books were sent and are now in place within the school.
