Angels Sittanunku Nursery School Inaugurated 26th January 2013

The Classroom Block For The Nursery Children in Sittanunku

We travelled across to the North Bank of the Gambia on Friday 25th January 2013 on a delapidated ferry with cows, goats and everything that a Gambian wanted to trade with. We arrived to a fantastic reception on the Juffereh (the Roots Kunta Kinteh village) road (thats if you can call it a road) at the village of Sittanunku where we were due to inaugurate our 3 classroom school with teacher’s office, store and toilet block. There must have been 200 men, women and children to greet us all singing their tribal welcome song.

Thank you all for your support for this and your continued support towards Karmic Angels goals in the Gambia.

Karmic Angels Car Draw Winner 2013 Announced

The car draw has finally closed for a brand new Kia Picanto donated by Kia Romford and Gocompare.com. The draw took place in London on 19th February 2013 and the winner was a local man Phil Butler from Widnes, Cheshire the winner’s name will also be on the small charities website www.smallcharitycardraw.org and local presss coverage will follow.

Total sales of draw tickets in aid of Karmic Angels were down this year mainly due to lack of online sales and also due to 2 major venues being washed out where we normally sell in excess of £1000 worth of tickets. Total sales amounted to £1432 which Karmic Angels will receive 92% of the value of those sales in March 2013.

Thank you to all those who bought paper tickets and well done Phil for winning this fabulous little eco car worth over £10000.
