Scores of Malawians have come forward to support Malawi Association AUK in the organisation of the floods fundraising event this Saturday in Nottingham which is being fronted by Nyasa Daughters of Nottingham, a group of Malawian ladies working towards making a difference to families, women and children affairs, with both human and material resources.
Malawian women across the UK have pledged to bring food to be sold at the fundraiser to raise funds that will go towards the floods victims in Malawi.
Nottingham based Joseph Chitipula otherwise known as DJ Jozey, proprietor of Zelina Music Company (ZMC) has given the Malawi Association UK his sound, DJ equipment and PA system to use for free on the day.
Austin Chiwala Mtonga, a Nottingham based Security operative has agreed to offer his services for free as it a requirement by law that such an event must have a security official with a certified and valid badge.
Normally, ‘badgered’ security operatives charges up to £15 to £20 pounds an hour for their service but Chiwala will donate his services towards the cause.
Malawi’s Nottingham popular drinking joint, Kwacha Social Club has pledged to donate 20 pence for every drink sold of the day’s sales towards the fundraiser and will host an after-party to the fundraiser event from 10:00 pm until late.
MAUK secretary general Stepheson Mbewe is appealing to individuals, companies and organisations, the faith community and friends of Malawi to support the Malawi Association UK in raising enough funds to go towards helping the flood victims in Malawi.
“The support is overwhelming. We thank everyone who has supported us and we urge others to come forward to support us,” said Mbewe.
Mbewe also appealed to all Malawians in the UK to come in their large numbers to support the event.
Nyasa Daughters of Nottingham co ordinator Vera Hau emphasized that there is no cover charge for entry into the hall during the fundraiser event but said there will be a contribution of donation box at the door in which people are asked to drop in whatever they can.
“The event is absolutely free of charge. There is no entry charge at the door but we will have a donation box where out of goodwill, people on their own volition will pay any amount when entering into the hall,” she said.
Hau however emphasized that all the food and drinks in the hall will be sold as part of the fundraising excercise apart from the many activities which includes an auction of several items.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
