This week, the Trinity community enjoyed a thoroughly professional jazz evening – one which also helped to raise funds for our partner school, Chipwepwete, in Malawi.

Money raised already, thanks to your generous donations, have gone towards the creation of a bridge, in order to help children get to our partner school, Chipwepwete, in Malawi, safely – even during rainy season.

Last night’s special live-streamed event showcased Trinity’s talented jazz musicians whilst raising money for the school’s Malawi Appeal which supports initiatives such as these. Music was provided courtesy of Swing Band and our Jazz Collective, with the Big Band taking the evening to its climax: the live prize draw!

Mrs Carey, Deputy Head of Lower and Middle Schools, says: “The bridge that we have contributed towards is almost complete just in time for the rainy season. Many of the children who come to Chipwepwete live on the other side of the river. Crossing the river also helps them to get to the market. In high rains this would be dangerous or impassable. This will be a real step forward for the whole community after the older bridge was swept away in the floods a good few years ago, and will allow children to come to use the school facilities all year round.”

The money raised really does make a difference to people’s lives. We are so close to this year’s target and so grateful for your contributions to date – and it’s not too late to donate for this year’s appeal.

It’s not too late to donate.
