£12,000 raised for Tanzania

Each year our Tanzania team has to raise money for the projects they will be undertaking when they visit in October: the cost of building goat sheds, water tanks and supporting health projects in remote villages. This year our team surpassed all expectations and raised an incredible £12,326 at a dinner and auction they ran in early March. Held at St Barnabas Church, Clapham Common, the event was a sell-out. Graham McClure, the founder of Go MAD in Tanzania and past Thames parent, inspired guests by talking about the work of Go MAD and the difference clean water and owning an Irish milk goat can make to the health of a family.  There were some amazing auction lots and raffle prizes, donated by parents of team members. The raffle alone raised £1,400 and the auction an incredible £7,430. As well as a delicious three course meal, guests enjoyed performances from our GCSE musicians. We are very grateful to all those who so generously supported this fundraising effort for Go MAD. We look forward to continuing our preparation for the trip and hope travel restrictions will have been lifted to enable it to go ahead as planned in October.
