MONMOUTH AM Nick Ramsay was delighted to sponsor and attend a recent Love Zimbabwe event, celebrating the charity's student project, which has taken students from Lampeter University's Anthropology department to the Community Centre in Domboshawa, Zimbabwe.
Held in Cardiff's Pierhead Building, those attending were interested to hear the charity's founders Martha Musonza Holman and her husband David discuss the success of the project, which they hope will be broadened to encompass other universities in Wales. They were also treated to a delightful performance of African singing from pupils of Llantilio Pertholey Primary School in Abergavenny and a lunch with a difference - a range of freshly produced African foods, provided by caterers Charlton House. The event was supported by Abergavenny Fairtrade.
Nick, who has been a stalwart supporter of the charity, congratulated Martha and David on their tireless efforts to help Martha's original community and said how much he had enjoyed last Wednesday's event.
"It was a great opportunity for all involved in Love Zimbabwe to showcase the good work that has been done and also to reflect the support that has been given to the charity by the Welsh Government's Wales for Africa team and Hub Cymru Africa.
"It was good to meet up and chat with students from Lampeter University and other organisations who have partnered Love Zimbabwe.
"I wish Martha and David every success with the student project and look forward to supporting their future events."
