After visiting Aquinoe Learning Centre, Linda and Chris spent some time near Mombasa, where they met Joe and Karin and talked about the school. Joe and Karin became interested in the charity and decided to do something to help.
On Saturday 26th June a big birthday bash was arranged with thirty Dutch friends for Karin and Joe organised a petanque (jeu de boule) competition.
Each competitor contributed 5 Euros to enter and it was well subscribed [155 Euros] when the party revellers were informed as to where the money was going to. I’m not sure whether it was the sun or liberal amounts of wine and beer that made them so enthusiastic, but they all played with the intensity you would expect with such a international flavour, with entrants from as far afield as Germany, Holland and England, the final being played out by Luc Everwijn and Caroline de Groot [both Dutch].
We all wish Aquinoe continued success.
