Gambia’s Nets Arrive

Hi all Just a quick note to say that the nets sent a few months back have finally cleared customs. Our partners, The Evangelical Church  of The Gambia, has many ministries already making enquires for nets in preparation for their summer outreach missions. We will, as ever, continue to bring photos and updates as we know about them. Thank you for all your donations that make this possible.

ELOSCN Raises £110 in Cycle, Scoot, Skate

The after school club at Longniddry Primary School put their wheels to work and covered some Mileage Against Malaria. 16 children took to their scooters, bikes and roller blades to raise some funds from an energetic afternoon in the park. Lots of fun was had by all. Many thanks to Philly, Anne, Nikola and Janine (and ELSOCN) for all their efforts in making this event happen.



Another 1,000 nets ahoy !

Great news. We have ordered another 1,000 nets which are loaded onto the cargo ship, Mackinac Bridge. The ship departed from Nanjing on the 16th January and is heading to Banjul via Hamburg.  This voyage will take approx. 6 weeks.

Gospel Nets Gambia ready to go.

Brilliant news! Our first big shipment of 1,000 nets has made the arduos 12 week journey by ship to The Gambia. The nets have worked their way through customs and were released last week to our missionary partners, WEC and The Evangelical Church of The Gambia. They are very excited about the future prospects of these nets. May God bless their distribution efforts and all those that they meet along the way.

Musselburgh Burgh Primary – Miles against Malaria

Burgh Primary got behind our cycling campaign to help raise funds. What a well supported event took place in September.  Children with all forms of wheels turned out. Bicycles, scooters, rollerblades, wheelchairs…  fantastic effort. Even the local newspaper joined in and covered it with a full page spread. The school raised over £1,100, helping over 440 families in the fight against malaria.

Huge thanks to all the children, parents and staff that brought this successful event together.

Longniddry Primary School Lends Support

Discussions with Longniddry Primary School have resulted in a ongoing arrangement for their support of our local charity.

We heartily welcome the children, parents and teachers to be involved in this drive to reduce malaria infections that confronts half of the world’s population. Funds raised are easily correlated to a quantifiable outcome as we have virtually no expenses and therefore funds simply purchase and deliver the mosquito nets.   In the new session we will do a presentation for them at school assembly and there is an expressed desire to take part in the September Cycle Challenge and perhaps do some dress down days too.

Thank you Longniddry Primary !
