The local Go-Go Grannies are sponsoring their annual St. Patrick’s Day Tea and Bake Sale at Christ Church Trinity, on Saturday, March 17, from 2 to 4 p.m. Admission is by donation.
All proceeds from this event will be given to the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmothers to Grandmothers campaign to support families in sub-Saharan Africa, who have been impacted by HIV/AIDS.
Grandmothers are caring for more than half the children orphaned by AIDS, having already buried their own children. Since 2006, more than 240 groups of Canadian grandmothers have raised over $10 million to support their African counterparts.
Ninety per cent of money raised in this campaign reaches these families. The money is needed to feed and clothe children and outfit them for school.
The Valley Go-Go Sisters are proud to be part of this movement in Canada.
