A woman who has raised thousands for impoverished people in Kenya will set up stall for the 25th year this week.

Pat Gallagher, from Stamford, will have stalls supporting the Wajir Mission in the market and St Augustine’s Catholic Church in Stamford on Friday.

Pat has been supporting the mission for decades and this will be her 25th year of setting up stalls.

Pat thanked everyone who has donated and contributed into helping the people of Kenya. She said: “with your constant financial help many babies’ lives have been saved.”

The stalls will offer tea, coffee, scones and second hand CDs, along with plenty of great bargains.

There will also be a raffle during the fundraising day. Hotels and businesses in Stamford kindly donated all the prizes available in the raffle.

Wajir Mission raises money to buy things such as milk power and food for the people who turn up at the mission station.

Pat said: “Many parishioners and family members set up a direct debit into the Wajir Account with Gift Aid, so this brings in a regular sum.”
