Goodbyes and hellos

Teaching volunteers with Volunteer Uganda have the opportunity to spend either six or twelve weeks working in a school.  Wednesday was when the six weekers left – a sad day but they certainly left their mark.  As they departed from the lodge for Kampala, at least we knew the hole they left would be filled by a new group of volunteers, who will arrive on Monday…

After a relatively quiet weekend, eight fresh-faced new recruits arrived, almost certainly tired after their long journey but no doubt excited to see their new home!  Hello to:

Andy Whalen

Jo Slade

Hattie Farrer

Robbie Gillespie

Kate Curry

Marina Martyn-Hemphill

Matt Perkins

Blake Collard

Hopefully the welcome we gave them was as warm as the one we had received six weeks earlier.  We had a great evening getting to know them, topped off by Arsenal’s dramatic late victory over Newcastle!
