Jump delayed till November ….. but WILL still happen!!
Its official, Jude Lechmere our project manager has gone BONKERS and is jumping out of a plan at 11,000 feet to raise money for a trip to Zimbabwe next year to build a school room. When asked why Jude said, ‘ I love doing foodbank and organising bits and the chance to travel next year and help on a school project is a chance I have to take, and the sky dive? well I will be 50 at the end of the year and want to enjoy it, not cry and be grumpy so a tandem sky dive it is!’
So why Zimbabwe? My husband and I met there in 1990, and last year he went to Uganda on a similar project and loved it so my turn, and if we can raise the money my hubby and 2 teenagers too. I am going with some other Church folk and want to be involved with something and hopefully our kids will see life a bit differently.
we are travelling with Mission Direct who work in other counties too, and they work with local builders and people, as well as local churches so the community owns the project and work together to make it happen’.
