AGM Report 2009

At the AGM, marking the end of the 2009 KOA season, it was announced that the total sum raised for Cecily’s Fund was 25,056.14. Cecily’s Fund works with children in Zambia who have been orphaned because of HIV and AIDS and the money donated by Kennington will pay for “Peer Educators” to go into schools and teach children about HIV infection and its prevention. In accepting the cheque the chairman of the charity told us that 50 young people would be trained as educators and the lives of at least 7000 children would be touched. He said that he was overwhelmed by the efforts of the people of Kennington and said a very sincere thank you to everyone in the village who had contributed in any way. The KOA committee are also very grateful for the wonderful support of so many people.

We now start to think about 2010, which will be KOA’s 42nd year. There will be a meeting on Thursday January 14th, at 8pm, in St. Swithun’s Church Hall, when next year’s project will be selected. The three proposals are now available and if you would like a copy on paper please contact one of us. Anyone can come to the meeting and vote, so do come along and have your say.
