Last week, Trust directors Dee and Steve went to Holt village hall for the presentation of the monies the musicians raised as a result of their 24-hour Playathon - an amazing £1,500.00. Our thanks again for such an amazing effort, and for this message from Joanne and the musicians.
“Dear All, following our 24-hour Playathon on October 7th and 8th 2016, we are delighted to donate the sum of £1,500 to the African Oyster Trust, with the specific aim of replacing the roof on the Lower Basic Jappineh School Library.
"Music for Adults @ Holt has thoroughly enjoyed raising funds for the African Oyster Trust during 2016 and wishes all involved a successful 2017. With best wishes, Joanne Jefferis & Holt Musicians”
