I just wanted to share a link with you. EI Canada is currently raising funds for our stoves project, so please take a look if you are interested! This is particularly for Canadians, but if you are not it Canada and would like to give, then drop an email to Sue Fallon in the UK office and she can help you. Thank you EI Canada for organising this support! Every bit helps! Also, if you have any ideas how we can raise funds for the village stoves project, please let us know.

I was just looking at what Laurie Leung (we used to teach in the Langley King's School) is doing with her children (and others) in Newcastle, Ontario, Canada, raising money for wells for Africa. (See the link here!) I have been inspired by Amelie in Year 5 in Aldermaston Primary School who with her friends was making things to sell and organising fund-raising for the school stoves project. It is so fantastic to see children getting excited about giving and realising how much they really can give! We have seen these past few months how hard it is here even to understand the difficulties of living without water and all the other conveniences and luxuries that we have. How hard it is to appreciate what we have when we are surrounded by it. But seeing these kids do just that is great, and so encouraging for the rest of us! Giving is a gift and seeing what children do, giving around the world, you see that nothing is too small!
And while we are on the topic of generous giving, we want to thank all those who have been generously giving (of both money and encouraging support) to us! So you, and anyone interested in supporting us as we return to Tanzania in January, are welcome to the Sarum Hill Centre in Basingstoke on Saturday, November 17th at 7:30pm. Please get in touch if you would like to come! There is more information about this in a previous blog (A What's Cookin' Evening)
We are back from our week at the lovely Pitt Farm (not far from Totnes in Devon and a fantastic place to stay!). Louisa's leg is healing up, the worst part about it was the missed swims! Here are some holiday pics with the cousins and grandparents! As you can see we did have some lovely weather - particularly for November in England!
