We’re so excited that our first major fundraiser for the year is a full house. Looking forward to a wonderful African dinner with all of those who were lucky enough to snap up a ticket.
Happy New Year to everyone, I hope you have had a good Christmas with
family and friends and you are enjoying this beautiful weather.

Thanks all who turned up to enjoy David Willersdorf in concert. He played all his own songs and gave the stories with each. Beautiful to listen to and very entertaining. We raised about $1500 for the children of Bethlehem Community Centre in Kenya.
Open 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
