At weekends in the summer the trustees of Thuso are out and about at local events and fairs fundraising for the feeding programme at the Thuto Lesedi School. We collect bric-a-brac and grow-on plants to sell throughout the year. Many of the plants are donated by one of our student sponsors, Mr Christoforou. Last year we had stalls at Cann Hall Baptist Church, Holy Family School, Hornbeam Environmental Centre, Lloyd Park May Fun Day, Redbridge Green Fair, Thuso Garden Party, Walthamstow Village Ass’n Garden Party, Walthamstow Green Fair, Walthamstow Mela, and the Leyton Day, We turn up in 4 cars packed to the roof with stuff to unload, and set up our stalls in wind, rain or sun! Last year we lost 2 gazebos, which were blown down and damaged beyond repair…
The pictures below show the Thuso stalls and trustees at various of the above events.
