Friends of Busega Scotland, Pete and Sandra Anderson, are joining John and Christine at a week long Refuel event in the historic grounds of Gordon Castle. Refuel is a summer family Christian festival and the only one in Scotland. Over 700 people are expected to attend and Busega Scotland has a stall selling African cloth bags (and made by Busega friend Ruth McIntosh), the cloth itself, Busega Scotland t-shirts and other items. We are also hoping to sign up regular donors, as such support is very much needed at present.
Gordon Castle has been a stronghold of the Gordon Clan since the fifteenth century, although the current building derived from a redevelopment in the seventeen hundreds. The grounds are magnificent with open parkland, woods, farming and the close-by River Spey. Gordon Castle is just three miles from where John and Christine live.
The Director of Refuel, Craig Mackay, invited Busega Scotland to attend the event after hearing about our projects in Tanzania. Craig has active involvement in charitable activities in South Africa and his company CM Design Consultants is helping us with architectural drawings for our proposed visitor’s house at Mayega Children’s Centre. Many thanks to Craig and Refuel for their support.
