Revellers Love The Rain for BFiM

Friday, July 29th, 2011

bfim blues and rock 2011The Blues n Rock Garden Party was once again a huge success, with over £4,000 raised by the event for projects in Malawi. Despite torrential rainfall, revellers danced to the stunning musical acts, and continued to tuck into fabulous foods with gusto – even the power cuts didn’t stop the festival style fun at the gorgeous garden venue. BFiM aims to raise £10,000 a year, so a big thank you goes out to everyone who attended, bought a raffle ticket and of course volunteered to take part in our annual event.

Monday, May 16th, 2011

Charity FootballsWe’d like to take the opportunity to thank all of you who have supported, and continue to support Building Futures in Malawi by purchasing charity gifts, making donations and signing up for charity work in Africa.  The success of the website has meant that we have just received a £500 donation, been contacted by 7 volunteers, have 50 footballs and 5 boxes of sports kit; and someone has contacted us who may potentially be donating a library! This is great news indeed, and it really does help build the futures of those in Malawi! Please keep up the wonderful support and check back to find out what else is going on with our latest project – The Lingadzi Academy in the next blog post.
