Over £6000 was raised for the Langalanga Scholarship Fund, which supports children and schools in Kenya. 150 people attended a hogroast at Penton Village hall, organised by Harry Vialou-Clark, the founder of the Langalanga Scholarship Fund and a resident of Penton Mewsey.
"Harry and his wife Alison spend a large part of their time in Kenya. helping to build and equip schools, and funding scholarships for children. I pay tribute to his energy and vision. Listening to the story he tells, one realises what a poor start in life so many children in Africa have because education is so badly funded. Harry has helped hundreds of children get a better start through the work of the Fund, of which I am proud to be a Vice-Patron."
Another Vice-Patron, Lord Howell of Guildford, also spoke at the event saying that, in Kenya as in the UK, it was all about education, education, education.
