Africa aid thanks

SIR - We would, through your columns, like to thank those people who have supported our African school fund raising programme, by purchasing books from our front garden at weekends.

My wife and I have just returned from Mombasa where we ordered the next batch of school desks for Junju Primary School, but, with 650 pupils to consider, we need to do much more as the pupils deserve all we can give.

We will be holding a table top coffee morning sale of books, bric-a-brac, cakes and linen at Sidmouth Voluntary Services, Twyford House, Coburg Road, Sidmouth at 10am on Wednesday, March 30, and look forward to receiving your further help then.
