The Bishop of St Albans’ Harvest Appeal 2015
‘Building Hope – Opportunity for All’
Total raised: £59,236.03 –
We celebrate another inspirational and successful Harvest Appeal. Mission Direct will be keeping us informed of the ongoing work in Uganda, which is being funded by our monies.
They plan to:
- Build a brand new dormitory for at least 20 children
- Renovate an existing building, making accommodation for another 10 children
- Create the infrastructure of ramps and additional facilities needed within the school site
Our agreement is that monies raised will be spent:
- Building works & materials for the school site – 80%
- The Chilli Children Project, which supports disabled children at the school – 10%
The work has started:
You have the opportunity to go and share in the building of these valuable additional facilities – going on a trip with Mission Direct will include:
- Working alongside local people at the school site
- Meeting the children in school and witnessing first-hand their delight at being there!
- Meeting local people to appreciate other projects in the region
- Appreciation of the beauty and issues of another ‘unfamiliar’ country and culture
- ……. and much, much more!
Will you consider going to ‘make a difference’ for these children in Uganda – find out more directly from Mission Direct.

- Firstly, with Bishop Alan, at Goffs Oak Primary School with their KS2 pupils, and special guest athlete, Catherine Robinson, a record-breaking kyakist, and
- Secondly, with Bishop Richard, with DADDS (Dunstable and District Disabled Sports) at the local leisure centre, where he and Alan McCormick (CEO Mission Direct) participated in a football game.
