Vimba Charity

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 canap├ęs 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!
