FoCH Social and Information Event

Following our recent Social and Information event at Haig's restaurant, Penicuik,Scotland, we are now blessed with a formidable, multi-skilled Board with an even stronger Diaspora presence. The Information workshop, facilitated by Consultant Gillian Wilson, helped match available skills to required roles. A real highlight were the live WhatsApp links with Zambian based Trustees Consider Mudenda and Levi Chifwaila who tuned in to inspire and motivate us.

Work done....and scones eaten....we repaired to the restaurant below for a sumptuous Zambian lunch provided by Head Chef Stephan Wood. That people came back for 2nds and 3rds suggests the nshima and relish were up to scratch. They were enjoyed by all
