Back in The Gambia
Once again a team from Pageant is back in The Gambia for the regular Easter holiday trip. And once again there are problems with internet access, so Frances is sending text and photos by email, and Dave the Webmaster is uploading the posts on Blogger. Here is the first post....
Hello everyone! This year's Easter team is a little smaller than planned, but just as enthusiastic! Tina is our deputy "head girl" and is accompanied by Frances, Rachel, Ellie and Caroline (who is due to arrive on Monday). We plan to visit lots of compounds, do a couple of maths and sports sessions in schools and catch up with lots of sponsored children and their families. There may also perhaps be a trip up country to look forward to!
We arrived safely and were greeted by three very smiley PAGEANT Gambians at the airport. We have lots to do this trip so are starting with an early night so that we are fresh and raring to go tomorrow. Stay tuned for more updates and photos during our stay (apologies for the light in the photo).
Love to all at home X
