FRIENDS OF NEW LIFE AFRICA INTERNATIONAL
We are a little group of craft workers comprising some partners of Rotarians (Sue Riches, Betty Cox, Kathy Carter and myself) plus a group of other local women. We meet most Thursdays to make craft items that we sell. We call ourselves ‘Friends of NLAI – New Life Africa International’ and we work to raise money for the school and orphanage that the Rotary Club of Encounter Bay supports in Nakuru, Kenya. We are also supported by Rotarians and their partners who donate items for the stall and also in particular by the members of a local quilt group called Stitch and Chatter.
This year our little group has raised an enormous amount, that being $5000. We make this money through the two Rotary Christmas Stalls held at Port Elliot and at Goolwa and also at a stall held in front of Westpac in September. We also run the quilt raffle, which this year was won by Jessica Newman of Victor Harbor. We sell craft items to our family, our friends and ourselves plus we have morning teas at our home in Port Elliot where we run mini stalls. We would encourage anyone who participates in groups of at least 15 and that go out for a cup of coffee to consider having ‘Coffee and a Scone at Knights Beach’ as this also generates money and is enjoyed by all. Please contact Janice in the New Year on 85542110 if you have a group that may be interested.
Thank you to all who have helped this successful fundraising effort. (Janice Virgin)
