Nkuringo School in Uganda
The Original Wordsmith learned about Nkuringo School in Uganda back in 2014. Unlike in the UK, a basic education is a luxury out there and certainly not a given.
Nkuringo School desperately needed help to fund the ongoing education of 60 children and were reaching out for sponsors. The Original Wordsmith sponsored one of these children – six year old Jonathan Akampurira. Annual sponsorship means that Jonathan will continue to receive an education and a daily hot meal.
Here’s a photo of Jonathan. Fortunately, his friends and classmates all found sponsors too.
The Oldies Club
This is Pru.
Pru is a 14-year-old Jack Russell who came to The Oldies Club after her original owners separated and were no longer in a position to care for her – The Oldies Club help older dogs across the UK to find loving homes.
Although she’s in good condition for her age, Pru was discovered to have an irregular heartbeat. Coupled with incontinence and cataracts, this made her very difficult to rehome.
It’s not all bad news though as The Oldies Club have secured a permanent foster home for Pru where she has a warm bed, lots of toys and plenty of cuddles. The Original Wordsmith is delighted to sponsor Pru ‘s care in her forever home.
Dame Vera Lynn children’s Charity
The Dame Vera Lynn Children’s Charity was established to support babies and children from under the age of five with cerebral palsy and other motor learning difficulties.
They rely solely on donations and, as such, hold frequent fundraising events to raise the vital funds they need to continue their good work.
The picture above was taken while supporting one of these events – a firewalk! Very fun, kept your feet warm and it was for a fantastic cause.
