Uganda visit 2013
Visitors from Uganda, (Left to Right) Hazel Connor, Horace Muhabuzi and Beth Muhabuzi, were club guests at a lunch at a local restaurant.
Hazel retired from teaching in England and went to Uganda in 1997 with the Voluntary Services Overseas (VSO) and there set up a fund to help in the education of children of very poor families.
SI Tamworth are very supportive of this, establishing an Educational Bursary to provide for the education of two sisters from a very poor family. Hazel has kept club fully informed of their progress with letters, photos and letters from the two girls. One sister who always dreamt of becoming a policewoman has a realised her dream, recently joining the Uganda Police Force and her sister now runs her own hairdressing business and works part time in her aunt’s pharmacy.
