The profits from this project will be going to the Buskaid Soweto String Project. Your money will be channelled into helping pay for a house recently purchased by Buskaid. The house is opposite the school and will take the overflow of students and student teachers. Next year they are hoping to build an instrument repair shop in the grounds of the house.
The price of this house was the equivalent of £12,500. Although we realise it will be in no way possible to raise enough from this project alone to pay for this, as they say "every little helps"!
This project was the brainchild of Danielle Hall (webmaster and creative genius) who started the ball rolling and was quickly followed by her cohorts Victoria Grimsell (printing and publishing encyclopaedia and technical whiz) and Louise Smith (sales, marketing, accounting and Buskaid consultant)!!
Between us we have been involved in many other fundraising efforts. These include the Legendary Black and White Party, Sponsored Disney Walks and the Buskaid Fundraiser 2001 to name a few. We have also helped out at the Nfa annual general meeting and the 3 Peaks Challenge (no one actually climbed any mountains, but some fabulous cups of tea were made!).
