April 21 charity auction – help finish build the school
Posted on March 5, 2012
Just a reminder about the Child of Hope charity auction and fundraising dinner!
The event will help raise thousands of pounds towards the completion of our school in the Namatala slum district of Mbale, Uganda – which will make a huge difference to the lives of hundreds of children who currently have very little hope for any kind of education and employment.
It will be hosted by top sports journalist Darren Lewis. A football writer for the Daily Mirror for ten years, Darren is a regular on the Premier League, Champions League and International Beat… plus Sky Sports News as well as radio stations TalkSPORT and Five Live, and occasional appearances on GMTV and CCN. He is named among the 50 most influential black people in the game, along with England captain Rio Ferdinand, Sol Campbell and Chris Kamara.
We have been donated some amazing lots for the auction, including sports memorabilia, tickets for sporting events... and plenty of non-sports things too! Fancy a beach hut on a Bournemouth beach for a week?

Now… could you pass this information on to someone you know who might be interested in one or more of those lots - or simply getting to meet Darren lewis? Bit cheeky... we know, but it is for some of the poorest children in Africa...
