Vimba is a small but dedicated charity that aims to aid and support people in Zimbabwe desperately in need of help. The charity was started in 2007 by a group of friends united by the same interest, and has since gained momentum, making a difference to many precious lives across the globe. It is certainly a very worthy cause to support.
I was invited to celebrate Vimba and Christmas at a festive evening a few weeks ago. It was amazing to hear a little bit more about the cause while seeing photos of those they have been able to help. Held in the hospitable Lodge Hotel in Putney, champagne and canapés were served whilst guests chatted.
The Vimba team gave a brief but inspiring talk about the year's challenges and progress, highlighting particular volunteers and contributors who had donated and raised money for the cause through feats like running a marathon. The highlight and conclusion of the evening came from vocal duo sensation Aurora who performed four uplifting songs, including a powerful rendition of Puccini’s Nessun Dorma which delighted the audience.
I implore you all to look at this fantastic charity’s website here, and next time someone asks for a charity name to donate to, suggest Vimba!
