Elena raises €200 for Pageant

Elena Tassi divides her time between the UK and Italy, About 3 months ago she visited The Gambia on holiday, with her young son Zion. While they were there, they visited a primary school, and met the children.

Elena was so impressed by the welcome she received, and the way the children entertained Zion, that she decided to say thank-you in a very practical way. She organised a fundraising collection at Zion's second birthday party in Italy, and raised a total of €201.46 (which translates to £171). She sent this to Pageant so we could use it to help Gambian children. Pageant says a big thank-you to Elena and her friends for their generosity.

Help us to find the school!

Pageant would like to use this money to help the Gambian school where she and Zion had such a good time. But there is a big problem. Elena doesn't know the name of the school. She knows it was in the south of The Gambia. There was also a Dutch flag at the entrance, because some Dutch people were helping the school.

Here is a challenge to our readers. Please look at the photos of the school above, and let us know if you can identify it. See more pictures and a contact link on this page of our website.
