When Garry Deeks was headteacher of Wilby Primary School, his school became very committed to the early work that Education Exchange was developing in Kenya. Under his leadership Wilby Primary developed close links with Mbauro Primary School near Wundanyi, resulting in visits in both directions over a number of years.
A group of Fressingfield residents held a fundraising event to mark the tenth anniversary of this link. Dave & Sue Shorten were unable to attend (they were in Kenya) but subsequently they met members of the group who presented them with a superb donation of £500 for Education Exchange funds. Other fundraising events are being planned over the summer as the group indicated a genuine desire to stay supporters of our charity
