Zambian Ambassador to UK attends ‘A Taste of Africa’ fundraiser


Two girls from Wycombe High School hosted a special fundraising event at the weekend, which was attended by the Ambassador of Zambia.

Sophie Richards, 15, and Sophie Ashmore, 16, hosted ‘A Taste of Africa’ – a joint fundraiser to raise money for their Outlook Expedition to Zambia next July.

More than 110 people attended the event, which showcased entertainment from Emmanuel the Magnificent, Katy Kartwheel and Africa Junction.

Paul Lumbi, Zambian Ambassador, attended the event with his wife, along with High Wycombe’s Mayor, Councillor Khalil Ahmed and his wife, Zareen.

The event was held at Christ the Servant King church, in Sycamore Road, and the evening raised more than £3,500.

  1. First off I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question that I’d
    like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out
    how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts
    in getting my thoughts out. I truly do enjoy writing but it
    just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply
    just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or
    tips? Kudos!
