You could hold a sponsored event to raise money for EWA, or sell things you have made. Two of our Trustees make jam and sell it to support EWA funds. Liz and Alistair Wood ‘upcycle’ wood and fabric and sell the articles they make. You can also use the Just Giving website to collect your funds if you are taking part in an event.
A group of pupils at Arundel CE Primary School held three events to raise money for EWA: a bake off, a fun run and a sale of cavings and jewellery from Sierra Leone which had been brought over by our ambassador Ansu Kamara. They raised £854.54, which was used for furniture and repairs at Mano Dassa School in Bo Province. Harry Williams, the Diocesan Education Officer in Freetown, wrote to the girls, saying: ‘Special thanks goes to special friends like Annie, Fleur, Mara, Poppy and Lucy for the fund raising activities done by them. On behalf of the Diocese and the Education Department we pray for God's blessing on their lives and as they go through their education they will excel with flying colors they will be the head for others to see them and copy their examples.”
In 2014 our Chair, Penelope Sharman, celebrated her 70th birthday by completing a sponsored swim of 70 lengths. Penelope raised over £2,500 for EWA’s Ebola appeal, which provided buckets, soap, sanitiser, chlorine and rubber gloves as well as sacks of rice to be shared out.
