The Rotary Club of Church Wilne welcomed Kate Lord when she gave the members an informative talk on her visit to the Mannor Orphanage in Uganda.

The trip was organised through Liverpool University and Global Hope.

Kate spoke about how she raised the required finance for the journey and thanked members of the club for their support .

On the trip there were three students, the Vice Chancellor of Liverpool University and his wife, and a member of the Global Hope.

The Mannor Rescue Home opened in September 2007 and from setting up to help just two children it now helps hundreds. The home and school room is now purpose built for boys and girls and teaches by ability and not age. Subjects taught include English and art.

They also played lots of sports and at the end of the visit the group organized a local sports day when hundreds were present, some walked more than three hours to be there.

Before the group’s return to the UK they had photographs taken at the equator and saw the slums near to the airport at Kampala.

The club’s vote of thanks was given by Andy Cartwright.
