This newsletter contains the latest information on the progress of the renovation of Chauncy Maples - about fundraising around the world, work in Malawi, and people living around Lake Malawi.
Derek Manger will be running the Shrewsbury Half Marathon on behalf of Chauncy Maples on 23rd June.
"I am now 60 and have always enjoyed running. This is the first official Marathon and Half Marathon in my home town of Shrewsbury. However I've not run more than about six continuous miles for nearly 10 years - thank goodness I've only entered the half marathon!
"It's just such an innovative and inspiring aim to restore the old ship to bring healthcare services again to the rural communities around Lake Malawi. This has added a really worthwhile emphasis to my modest effort. So I really hope that everyone who reads this will make a donation for the Chauncy Maples."
You can make a donation via Derek's Just Giving page.
