Eyes down for fund raising for the Friends of Nyansakia by Bourne Abbey and Bourne Elsea Park
On Thursday, February 13, lots of Bourne Abbey and Bourne Elsea Park families gathered together to raise money for Friends of Nyansakia by taking part in a fun-packed bingo night.
Eyes went down and two crazy bingo callers read out the traditional numbers such as ’88 two fat ladies’ and ‘clickety click 66’.
There were prizes galore and the tension mounted as the games went on – some lasted for ages!
Friends of Nyansakia is a Bourne-based charity who support a school in Nyansakia, Kenya.
Bourne Abbey and Bourne Elsea Park have a long association with them and the children love raising money to help our friends in Africa.
The latest project is to build a chicken house and provide chickens and roosters to supply the children with eggs to supplement their diet.
Amazingly, a whopping £338.50 was raised on the night – which is an awful lot of chickens!
Mrs Anderson, Bourne Abbey student council co-ordinator and committee member of Friends of Nyansakia, said: “What a fabulous turn-out we have had.
"Many thanks to all of our lovely friends and families who came tonight – we can’t wait to tell our friends in Nyansakia that they can get the chickens to fill the chicken coop!”
