ZEM, Zimbabwe Education MTAPA, is a charity set up by Bolton, Calverley and Saltaire Methodist Churches to help disadvantaged children get an education. The children live in one of the poorest townships in Zimbabwe.
The recent ZEM Zimbabwean Lunch & Concert proved to be a very successful event. This was attended by about 40 people who enjoyed a meal prepared by Zimbabwean members of Trinity Methodist Church in Leeds. The event also had a splendid two-part concert by the Palm Court Quintet.
We had donated £100 towards the cost of food which was returned by our Zimbabwean friends in recognition of their appreciation of the work we do for the children in Mtapa. We anticipate that funds will be increased by £300+ as a result. ZEM is very grateful for the hard work and organisation of both Calverley Methodist Church and our Leeds friends.
