Groups drum up support for charity
SOUNDS of Africa reverberated from an arts centre when a charity showcased its work with the help of drumming groups.
Langley’s Kontaani drumming group and Manchester based Tanante performed at Bollington Arts Centre as Village Rwanda UK showcased its charity work.
There were African dishes cooked by chef Rob of Cafe Waterside, Rwandan crafts and music.
Village Rwanda UK (VRUK) organised the event to raise funds to relieve poverty in rural Rwanda.
The trustees, who are former teachers and volunteers with international development charity VSO, have first-hand experience of life in Rwanda.
VRUK is working to continue its project on a nursery children’s daily feeding programme and Early Years education.
Margo Park, trustee, said: “With trustees living in Bollington and Macclesfield who have worked previously with VSO in Rwanda, we now want to involve our local community with one in rural Rwanda.
“Bringing world music to Bollington was one of our reasons behind the event and Kontaani are from Langley, so we were pleased to promote local talent.”
