Support Island charity working in Uganda this Red Nose Day

This Red Nose Day please consider donating to a local Island charity that has been working in Uganda since 2007.

Long-time OnTheWight readers will remember Nikki Collinson’s great work with children in Africa through the charity she set up, Africa Children’s Development Trust.

All sorts of fundraising events have taken place for the charity, such as the Row For Life in St Thomas’ Square back in 2010 which raised £8,500.

This Red Nose Day Nikki is asking Islanders to consider donating to this Island charity that has been working in Uganda since 2007.

Just £3 will buy a life saving mosquito net that will protect two to three children. It’s amazing that such a small amount of money can save so many lives.

If you are able to please text NETS77 £3 to 70070.

Find out more about the charity by visiting the Website.

Watch this video created by Nikki showing some of the work they’ve done in Uganda.

    Thank you so much for posting this x The short film above was made in 2008 (when nets were £2.50) and shows our very first distribution of 100 nets. Since then we have distributed nearly 6000 nets to children across Uganda but the film although made by me a very amateur movie make just using my digital camera hopefully gives you a small insight into real people working in developing countries xx
