The Raven Trust provides practical, direct support to needy communities in Malawi, East Africa.
Clear skies and sunshine greeted those who came to Strachur on Saturday, 16th October for the Raven Trust Open Day. Friends old and new from all over the country joined our regular volunteers to see the loading of FCL 72 with 1,185 boxes of goods en route to Malawi.
With the departure of the container, the venue switched to the Strachur Village Hall for the exhibition of pictures and stories of the work of the Raven Trust in Malawi and short talks from John Challis (with promptings from Sue), Bob and Jan Baxter, Tony Kidd, Alan Laverock and Dave Thomson on thier impressions of Malawi and the work they did there on their recent visits.
John and Sue Challis will be off to the north east of Scotland shortly to deliver a series of talks in Gardenstown, Macduff, Lossiemouth, Peterhead and Stonehaven.
