Gambia: Insightful Donations, TV Documentary.

Hi all,

You may have seen this already, but just noticed a programme on 'The Community Channel' at 8pm this Saturday (repeated Sunday):

www.communitychannel.org/schedule/20130921/

"Gambia: Insightful Donations

Inspired by charity appeals, filmmaker Vivi Stamatos travels to Africa. She joins the founder of a charity that gathers funds for a remote village in Gambia."

Mike.

I just watched this program, it was very interesting, it also busted the myth that registered charities don't visit rural areas of TG.

The English Lady, came across well, which in reality is the only way to come across, especially if representing or allied with charitable causes.

For those (like me) who don't have cable/sky there is a video available here:

communitychannel.org/video/…

I'm not sure if it's the whole programme or an edited version, but it lasts just over 23 mins. I will give it a watch later

Trev we sat next to Sue in the film on a flight over a few years ago, she soon engaged us in conversation telling us about her work in a village, which made the flight time go so much quicker. As you know we have met Del since then and she too is a most dedicated women helping those far less fortunate than ourselves.
