You have helped to feed the world!...
A big heartfelt thank you to all those that have ordered online as your orders have managed to raise cash for Self Help Africa (formerly Harvest Help) who specialise in helping people grow enough food to feed their families, help them find ways of earning a living and help communities manage their own development.
Pictured opposite is myself handing over £100 to Harris Mfune, the Malawi Director of Self Help Africa, on a UK visit to the Wellington office.
