The Kingswood Secondary Academy, Corby made their annual visit to Penyem during February 2014. For a year they had been fundraising and getting involved in the 2014 mosquito net appeal. On January 1st 2014 we set a target for the year to fundraise to allow us to but 250 mosquito nets for the villagers. By the end of January we had raise enough money for 626 nets - a year's target in one month! We had also set a target for 2015 to fundraise to replace our old village community ambulance. In February 2014, with the help of £2500 donated by the Kingswood students, we were able to buy a replacement - two years of targets in 2 months!
