ANDREF holds successful fundraiser

Top. Charles Njonjo, Geraldine Evans , Margaret Njonjo and Oluoch Olunya at the Spring Valley Bazaar

A  recent fundraiser for ANDREF was held at the Spring Valley Bazaar on the 27th and 28th November.  This craft fair donated the entrance fee to ANDREF and the proceeds of the raffle.  This in total came to 347,300/- that went directly to ANDREF. This in turn will fund investigations and operations for the Neurological patients in most need.

Very many thanks to Geraldine Evans and Deborah Evans the event organisers for their hard work.  To Hemingways Resort who donated the first prize of three nights for two at their wonderful hotel in Watamu, special thanks to Dicky Evans for his generosity and Dino Bisleti of Air Kenya who also donated the flights for two. To Charles and Margaret Njonjo who drew the Raffle and Mr. David Oluoch Olunya who donates his time in Kibera and Waithaka for charity patients, and to the girls on the gate who managed to sell so many raffle tickets, Anne Da Gama Rose, Samira Furrer, Jyoti Shah, and Geraldine Dunford. Not forgetting Godfrey Okoth who was so reliable and diligent at the entrance gate, his background in accounting certainly was an advantage!

We hope to stage this event next year.
