What the school catering staff would really like for Christmas is a new kitchen for Uphill. That is a little too much for Santa to cram onto his sleigh*, but we can start the fundraising at least!
When you are trying to feed hordes of hungry children and your kitchen looks like this, it is definitely time for a revamp. The school inspectors think so too.
In December 2020 we launched our New Kitchen for Uphill Appeal. We plan to build a permanent kitchen with three ‘burners’, good ventilation, and an attached multipurpose dining room/assembly hall. Liddy spotted this school kitchen block when she was visiting schools in Uganda with Dentaid, in 2019, and it gives a good idea of the type of cooking facility that would work well at Uphill Junior School.
Our fundraising target is £30,000 and, we are almost there – just over £4,000 to go!
Please can you help, by giving a donation or hosting a fundraiser, so that we can build a clean, hygienic, new kitchen for Uphill. The cooks can then produce nutritious meals for the children in safety. Thank you!
* Talking of sleighs…
Best wishes to all to our wonderful supporters from all over the world, and thank you so much for helping us to get through this second, very difficult year. We hope you continue to stay safe over the festive season.
