A ques­tion of help­ing the needy

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FAMILY ANNOUNCEMENTS -

A SCHOOL teacher is or­gan­is­ing a char­ity quiz night to raise funds for a build­ing project in Africa. Luke Dolby, 27, is re­turn­ing to his home of St Michael’s for the quiz, to be held in the vil­lage hall on March 24. The aim is to raise funds for the Build A School project in Malawi. Mr Dolby, a teacher at Swade­lands School at Len­ham, first got the idea while work­ing as a TV cam­era­man. He said: “I went to In­dia to film the af­ter­math of a tsunami and I vis­ited a school. “They asked for help in rais­ing money for new class­rooms. So I filmed a DVD, sent it to some com­pa­nies and raised the money.” Mr Dolby hopes to raise the £40,000 nec­es­sary to build the school, in a project which has also at­tracted sup­port from the likes of Ian His­lop. The quiz is £7.50 a head and in­cludes fish and chips and a bot­tle a wine for the ta­ble. To book, phone 01233 770780 or (evenings) 01580 774025.
