Quiz success and winter news

BCC Africa hosted a very successful quiz night on Jun 29. We had many
offers of prizes, supper and drinks and raised over $9000 on the night.

Quiz Master Philip Dalwood again did a great job and over 120 people had
a very enjoyable night.

The winners were the team headed by Sally Banks who just pipped out Ange
Jenkins team by half a point out of 60 up for grabs.

Bidding for accommodation at Bay of Fires was lively and the quilt
donated by Fran Williams raised $826.

Our next function is an Open Garden at Otago Bay on Oct 12th.

Our winter newsletter is out and you can read some great stories about
the kids by following the link. BCC News Winter 2019

We have a number of students who have finished high school and seeking
support for further education. If you would like to donate from $20 up
on a monthly basis then contact chris@bccafria.org

Thanks to all who support the work of BCC Africa and contribute to
making lives better for the kids of Bethlehem Community Centre in Kenya.

Open Garden Success and upcoming concert

ConcertOpen Garden was an outstanding success.

October 6th was a day to remember. 630 people visited the amazing garden
of Maree and Pam Johnston in Otago Bay. They were welcomed in by about
15 enthusiastic Ukulele players, treated to a delightful Devonshire Tea,
helped raise over $12,500 for BCC Afica and delighted in exploring the
2.5 acres of garden. Many went home with plants from the plant stall and
trinkets from the trade table. Thank you to all those who visited on the
day, to all the volunteers and especially to Pam and Maree for sharing
their garden.
