CONGRATULATIONS TEMWA

May 16, 2012

A massive congratulations to the wonderful staff at Temwa for another great evening on Saturday.

The sun came out and the beer garden of the Full Moon was packed.  It was great to see some faces that we’d not seen for a long time and Babyhead’s Tom was roped in to play auctioneer again, which is always great comedy value and we loved the auctioneers claw hammer!

But of course none of this was the reason for the night, and it was great to see people digging deep on the auction lots raising an astonishing £8,000 for the charity, all of which will go towards creating sustainable communties in Malawi.

Thanks and big ups to all those involved and turned out on Saturday night.

We love May, mainly because this is the month that Temwa hold their amazing Art for Africa auction.

It has grown year on year and continues to raise much needed funds for sustainable community development in the African Republic of Malawi.

You don’t have to collect art or even be a fan of it as the evening provides so much more, it really is a very entertaining evening.

So if you’ve not been before then why not just give it a go, and for those of you that have well you’ll know what a good night it is already so we’ll see you there!
