How the donations were spent in 2015

Hi, how are you?

Here is the shopping list of items that was sponsored for my trip in 2015.

Thanks to the many people who donated directly in either sponsoring an item/s or in kind for me to take to Zambia,or the bibles and puzzles purchased here.The remainder of the items like footballs were purchased in Zambia or  the frame and netball/ basketball hoops which were made locally in Kamatipa.

For those who donated money but were happy for me to make the decision how the money was spent once I was  in Zambia, Play 4 All was able to have more repairs done on the building. the porch area of the Play 4 All building was  recemented, another strong padlock for increased security, and a new pump for the balls. I have also left about £45 with Jenny to use for replacing items in due course.
