Rotary Club of Loddon Vale Support Kileva Foundation
Last year I was invited by the Rotary Club of Loddon Vale (where I used to be a member before transferring to the Rotary Club of Devizes) to speak about the Kileva Foundation to the their two Interact Clubs, namely the one at The Piggot School in Wargrave, and the other at Waingels College in Woodley.
Soon afterwards I was delighted to hear that both clubs had decided to support the charity, and this was soon confirmed in the following article which appeared in the November edition of the Rotary Club of Loddon Vale Newsletter:
Donation from Waingels College
Following a winter of fundraising, I was invited back to Waingels College recently to give an update on how the Kileva Foundation projects had progressed, and to receive a cheque from them to help support the work we’re doing.
I duly attended the meeting and was absolutely astonished to discover that the cheque was for £1,000! I know that this represents a lot of hard work by the Waingels Interact Club on fundraising, and I would like to pass on my sincere thanks, and those of everyone involved in the work of the charity, for their very generous donation.

I subsequently discussed how the money should be spent with both members of the club and with the Kileva Eastfield School Management Team in Kenya, and the decision was to use it to help complete the building work on class 8. This work is progressing well, and I look forward to posting pictures of the “Waingels Interact Room” (to be named in recognition of the major contribution made by the club) when it’s complete.
Thanks to Kileva Donors
Thanks again to everyone associated with the Waingels Interact Club, and to the many other Kileva supporters for their donations that have made completion of the class 8 building work possible.
