We would like to say a big thank you to all our friends who took part in Play in to Help Out and its various activities. The event was concluded at a Presentation Evening on 10th April. The quiz answers were revealed, a talk was given on the difference Busega Scotland is making in Tanzania and the raffle drawn.
The quiz was won by Jenny and Rob Wallen. They were later presented with a bottle of bubbly by Andy Lees, of Lees Wealth Management, who kindly donated the champagne. Many thanks to Andy and congratulations to Jenny and Rob.
A Mayega Shuka was the unique prize in the raffle. It was won by Stepnen Ambu, an old friend of John Carney from his university days in the mid seventies. Stephen lives in Kuala Lumpur. He said of the shuka, ‘very beautiful. I will treasure it always. Will now have to move to a cold climate!’. The shuka has arrived in Malaysia and Stephen is shown ‘modelling’ it!
A shuka is a traditional African garment. The Mayega Shuka pattern was developed by the children at Mayega Children’s Centre and the pure new wool cloth produced at the historic Knockando Woolmill in Speyside, Scotland. Only 40 were made and we have a small number left to sell at £95. All of the sale price goes towards the work of Busega Scotland.
