Zambian farmers, young mothers and orphans are all beneficiaries of a charity coffee morning at Northchurch Baptist Church this weekend.

The Wynaud Trust is hoping to raise money selling crafts from the village it supports Kabulamema.

A pianist will be on hand to accompany free tea, cofee and cakes while visitors are treated to updates on the Trust’s education, health and small business projects in the African nation.

“It’s an opportunity to give people a chance to look at what happens and find out more about what we do,” said organiser and trustee Nigel Brown.

He started the charity in 2009 with his wife Alison after visiting an orphange the church had supported for more than 40 years.

“There were such significant needs in the community we started a charity to increase standards of living help people set up small businesses,” he said.

The coffee morning is at Northchurch Baptist Church between 10am and 12pm on Saturday.
