MAHECAS secretary Harry Mabaso told Nyasa Times that the Nottingham Dinner and Dance has been organised to bring Malawians together to dine, dance and connect while at the same time raising money for a cause back home in Malawi.
“We are inviting all Malawians and friends of Malawi grand Dinner Dance gala night to be held in East Midlands whose all proceeds will go towards the renovation and re-equipping of the Phase 3 of the Dental Department at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in the commercial city of Blantyre. It will be a great rendezvous for Malawians to network, associate and have great fun while at the same time doing a service to their country,” said Mabaso.
Mabaso is therefore asking those interested to attend the event to make their bookings in advance saying as the numbers are limited adding that there are just a few places left to what he described as MAHECAS’ most colourful event of the year.
He said: “Those that will miss the chance to attend will surely be kicking themselves in the stomach for missing out. It will be a night to remember. Those that have attended our previous events can bear witness to the fact we organise nothing but the best. All the tickets must be purchased in advance and we will not sell any tickets at the door.”
According to Selemani Chitulu, chairperson of the organising committee of the event, music on the night will be provided by master of turntables DJ Joze (Joseph Chilipula) of Zelina Music Company and DJ Yakil of Kemet FM who will spin the decks throughout the night to keep the patron on their dancing feet afloat.
Chitulu told Nyasa Times that all is set for night and that tickets which are going at £35.00 per adult and £17.50 per child under 12 years old are fast selling like hot cakes saying many people have already got themselves their tickets and that only a few places are left.

He added: “But what people must know is that by attending to this dinner and dance they are actually making a contribution to Malawi. The money which they will pay for the ticket will make a difference to millions of people in the Warm heart of Africa, Malawi as the proceeds will be used to help in refurbishing the dental unit at Queens Elizabeth hospital, the biggest referral hospital in Southern Malawi.”
