On Friday 23rd May at 6.30pm the Watoto Children’s choir from Uganda will be doing a FREE open air concert on Ditchling village green ( behind the church ) supported by The Mac’s Organic Free Range egg farm.
Danny Mac is helping on a egg farm project for Watoto who rescue abandoned children, give them a home, school and future, and has been out to Uganda twice in the last 9 months to help them run the farm, meet the kids and look after the 8000 hens they have, which is far from easy with all the problems they face.
You can follow his blog on The Mac’s farm facebook page or go to the website www.themacsfarm.co.uk it makes very interesting and funny reading.
The Mac’s are delighted to be able to welcome the choir to Ditchling and are putting them up on the farm, and in host homes around the village for the weekend.
Everyone is welcome to the concert, just bring your chairs and picnics. Arrive early as parking can be difficult in Ditchling, we are offering parking on the farm to help, which is only a 5-10 min walk away.
The Mum’s of Ditchling will be selling Tea and homemade cakes afterwards in the barn to help raise some extra money, and the Watoto Auntie’s sell merchandise, CD’s and books as well as offering sponsorship for the children.
Come along and meet the children and hear their stories, you will leave smiling from head to toe.
