Recent and Forthcoming Events
In April Dorothy Crowther and Abdul Kamara visited the centre at Rokel. While there Dorothy opened a well in the village of Marout. The women were doing a six mile round walk to get fresh water. See more about wells here and about the visit here..
During the visit they met a group of amputees who were victims of the civil war. They identified a need for a well for the amputees. We are pleased to announce that the Suzy Fund have agreed to fund the well and work is now advanced. http://www.suzyfund.org

Fund Raising Event
We were entertained at the Badger Farm Community Centre
Winchester on 12th June 2011 . Five musicians donated their time free of charge and delighted us with their performances of classical favourites. Members of the quartet were Fiona Crowther, Sarah Harrison, Ian Partridge and Tony Pill. The keyboard was played by Steve-Kent Davies. £370 was collected in donations for QPNWA. We would like to thank all the musicians, the donors who paid for the room and insurance and those who donated tea and coffee and of course the wonderful audience who gave so generously to the cause.more...
