Over 80,000 baht raised at a musical event for the Wat Klang Primary School

On the 1st of November a charity event took place at the Wat Klang Primary School in the south of the island to raise money to buy more furniture for the school.

The event came about after Jane Openshaw went to the school to do an English camp with some volunteer teachers last month. While she was there she found that not all of the students had their own chairs and desks. Initially she thought of contacting the SOS to help with the equipment but fundraiser wat klang primaryafter talking to Lindsey Archbold she and her husband decided to create a music concert evening  at the school as it is in their local area.

Khun Mod (Lindsey’s husband / Director of Surat Inter construction) donated all the funds for the staging, bands, staff and equipment needed for the evening to go ahead. Lindsey and Khun Mod then promoted the evening with all the Thais and locals in the area, Jane Openshaw ‘s job was to get the foreigners there to enjoy and donate.

The evening was a great success and raised 80,000 THB so far, with more donations coming in.

Lindsey, Yvonne and Jane will be sourcing the chairs and desks and donating them as soon as all donations have been collected. They are hoping for a bit extra for some whiteboards and such to add to the donation.
