A while ago I posted about Action Aid, I’d been to visit them in London. Action Aid are an inspiring organisation, they do incredible work in developing countries. Well known for organising Child Sponsorship they also campaign and support communities towards sustaining themselves.
Action Aid are organising a Bloggers Tea Party, a chance to find out more about Action Aid, meet other bloggers and eat cake (how’s that for a nice afternoon?).
The event takes place at their headquarters in London, there will be displays and information on the work of Action Aid.
An opportunity to listen to comedian and ambassador Mark Watson who’ll be talking about his experience of sponsoring a child and his trip to Senegal, of course there will be space to ask Mark questions.
There’s a short film – a quick edit of Action Aid various projects. Meet Lynn Banks, a child sponsor, who’s been to visit her child in Lesotho.
