In aid of Trinity School’s trip to Malawi Whitgift House held a coffee morning on Tuesday 21st March. Residents raised £150 at their coffee morning for the charity Hope4Malawi, which will go towards the feeding programme and educational toys for the children.
Students performed a range of musical ensembles including piano, violin, trumpet and cello solos and duets.
Trinity 5th Form student, Charlie spoke about performing: “It’s great to have the opportunity to perform a small recital in front of the Whitgift House residents.”
Whitgift House resident Carmel said: “I was keen to support Trinity’s trip to Malawi as my great nephew Charlie who attends the school is going. It will be a wonderful and valuable experience for the students and we look forward to hearing about the trip on their return. We were thrilled to raise £150, which will be used to pay for feeding programmes and to buy educational toys and books to be taken out on the trip.”
Sherry Sprunt, Trustee of Hope4Malawi: “An excellent, first class concert! Hope4Malawi is very grateful to Trinity School for once again supporting children’s educational development in our partner schools in Malawi.”
The Trinity Malawi Project’s main fundraising focus is the feeding programme at Chipepwete School, such that each child who attends the school receives a porridge lunch each day. It costs just £12 a year to feed each child every school day, so with 600 pupils and counting we’re targeting over £5000. With any additional funds raised we are looking to build and resource a library at the school.*
