Gambia Project fund-raisers pictured at a massive sale in Uckfield last year are Tanya Catt, centre, her husband Tim, and daughter Hayley Page.

Another £313 raised for Gambia project – next event date here

Another £313 has been raised as an Uckfield couple work towards building a school in Gambia.

The money came via a sale at Portman Court and residents have asked for another to be held at Christmas.

Fund-raiser and sale organiser Tanya Catt said she hoped to do that but it would depend on the number of donations of items for sale received before then.

Wreath-making class

In the meantime a wreath-making class is being held in support of the project on Tuesday, November 20, at the Cinque Ports Club at 7.30pm.

A professional florist will teach you how to make your own Christmas wreath ready to take home and hang on your door. You will also be able to enjoy a mince pie, find Christmas gifts and take part in a raffle.

Tickets are £30 each and if you would like to support the event please contact Tanya on 07719721378, or email her at

Land for the school has already been bought see: Gambia land bought for school by Uckfield people is being secured.
