Out of Africa meal
Out of Africa, on 29th September, was an evening of good food and company – colourful kangas on the tables and David T. got a round of applause for wearing his kaftan, embroidered by disabled people in Malawi.
The cooks did a great job, and the young people once again charmed everyone with their waitering skills and smiles.
No-one wanted to go home after the meal was over – the sign of a good evening.
The meal was part of our Harvest weekend and was planned by the Eco-congregation and Fairtrade groups.
The surplus from ticket money, £165, was donated to the Christian Aid Harvest project, supporting people like Aster in rural Ethiopia where she runs a solar-powered shop as she can not longer rely solely on farming for an income.
The Fairtrade stall also made a good number of sales and we heard about the difficulties faced by Traidcraft.
