Fund Boost for Kaloko Trust from Broome Farm
you may have read in a recent issue of Wyenot News, a fantastic
and Music Festival was held at Broome
Farm, Peterstow. Although the cider festival
is the biggest event on the Broome Farm calendar, many other
events, such as ceilidhs, folk nights and blues nights are
held there, not only guaranteeing everybody a great night
out, but giving them the opportunity of supporting their
chosen charity of the year.
the last twelve months, Broome Farm guests have been donating
money to the Kaloko Trust and we were invited along to the
farm on Friday evening for both a social gathering and the
presentation of a cheque to Kaloko Trust Director, Andrew
Brown. A staggering £2,525 was raised for the trust
who are teaching the people of the outlying villages of
Zambia to become not only self sufficient, but environmentally
friendly at the same time.
main source of income out there until recently was making
charcoal, which of course depletes the density of the surrounding
forests. Under the guidance of the trust they have now begun
keeping bees. They will soon be able to make money not only
from the honey the bees produce, they will also be able
to make wax products such as candles and other items, hopefully
doing away with the need to destroy the trees.
was absolutely delighted with the cheque and promised to
bring some honey back from Zambia upon his next visit.

out, Cindy took charge of the barbecue, some fun conker
fights were held and a bit of a sing-a-long went on in the
background. A most enjoyable evening was had by all.

local people must have noticed that washing the car is something
I do not generally do. I have owned that car for four years
now and have only ever washed it twice - once the day I
got it and four years later, just five days prior to the
Goodrich Children in Need day. If only I had known about
the event just that little bit further in advance.
