NEXT TRIP TO UGANDA
FOCUS 1

We are now thinking and planning about what we will be wanting to do on our next trip our to Kisaabwa this year in early summer. One thing that needs doing is equipping the farm kitchen with plates, cutlery and the like. The farm is gradually becoming the hub of the community and the place where visitors and officials come and will usually need to be fed. 
Annette the cook and some of the ladies did write a wish list for me and we thought that maybe we could start collecting a few items to take out there with us. So if you are about to have a clear out these are the kind of things that we are after.
  • Knives, forks, spoons etc
  • Plates, Bowls, Mugs but not china. Strong plastic would be easier to transport and last longer.
  • Stainless steel items would also be good.
  • Nothing heavy and nothing that is breakable.

This was the outside of the kitchen on our last visit out there. So we need to sort out the interior now and make it a workable space.
THANK YOU
NEXT TRIP TO UGANDA
Other Focusses

We do have a couple of other things that we plan to do when out there, but I will save these for the next newsletter, as one still depends on some extra funding. The grant for the women we were unsuccessful with on this occasion, but we will have an important funder to thank in the next newsletter.
FUNDRAISING

Meanwhile to help us raise funds and if you live near Presteigne, how about coming along to a quiz night on Tuesday 12th May at the Royal Oak, Presteigne, Powys, Presteigne being our Wales/Africa link community. Lots of exciting prizes on offer and a fun evening in the process. Our plan is to provide this 'pub quiz', which has an African theme, as a package to any other keen 'pub quiz organisers' anywhere in the country. News on how to do this in the next newsletter. Do let me know if this might be of interest to you.

PLEASE ALSO LET US KNOW IF YOU HAVE HAD SUCCESSFUL WAYS IN FUNDRAISING WHICH YOU CAN PASS ON.
FINALLY ......HERE'S MARTINS CONTRIBUTION TO THIS MONTHS NEWSLETTER.
CABBAGE TREE EMPEROR MOTH
Bunaea Alcinoe

Yet another amazing exotic creature which presented itself to us on the farm.
We only saw the caterpillar which was not something you would argue with in view of its apparent  armament and intimidating size -about three inches long. 


But it pupates into an incredibly beautiful moth with a wing span of around five or six inches.


Thank you for reading this recent newsletter. We hope you found it interesting.
