Battle of Hastings - 950th Anniversary Commemoration
Yvonne Johnson represented Hastings, Sierra Leone and the Twinning Link at Concorde 1066, the commemoration of the Battle of Hastings 950 years ago yesterday. Delegates from Sierra Leone were unfortunately unable to come and Yvonne from the Hastings Sierra Leone Association was accompanied by Richard Homewood, Chairman of the Hastings Sierra Leone Friendship Link. Yvonne's traditional dress attracted lots of attention and interest from other dignitaries and the Saxon and Norman warriors and it was an ideal opportunity to raise the profile of the Friendship Link and the Twinning in the wider community.

MUSIC QUIZ A GREAT SUCCESS RAISING £550 FOR THE SIERRA LEONE FRIENDSHIP LINK. Around 100 people turned out last Friday (16 September) to support the Link's Music Quiz Night. This the second challenging quiz devised for the Link by Lesley Anne Matthews foxed a few people and technology tried to outwit the presenters but it was a roaring hit with most and everybody had a great evening at St Paul's school. Our thanks go to Lesley Anne for the quiz, Head Teacher, Richard White for kindly hosting the event, to the team of people that made it possible and last but not least to those who came along and took on the challenge. Winning team 'Unit 4 plus two and a half' were presented with the cash prize by Richard, our Chairman and presenter on the night and they promptly returned the prize as a donation. That's sportsmanship for you.
All of the money raised will go towards the Link’s work in the Hastings area in Sierra Leone as we continue to help them rebuild their lives after the Ebola outbreak and the serious flooding in the area which followed. Work is continuing to improve health care facilities in the village to tackle some of the highest rates of infant mortality in the world and the ravages of disease such as malaria and HIV as well as improve general health care to the community. Work is also underway to re-establish the teacher exchange programme for 14 schools in the UK twinned with schools in Sierra Leone to help raise education standards. The Link is determined to increase its efforts to raise funds to help the community improve their livelihoods and build a sustainable future.
Keep your eyes open for announcements of future fundraising events and do join in.
