Our concert at Black Dyke Mills was well attended and the talents of our performers - Knock on Wood and United Harmonies - were enjoyed by all. The evening attracted a new sponsor for Mpika and raised £400 towards our activities at the orphanage.

A huge thank you to all who worked so hard to make this event a success.

We have made changes to the Black Dyke Mills furniture store including expansion to the end of the mill building, and it has a new coat of paint. A big thanks to all our hard working team for making this possible. If you haven't yet visited the mill, you will be amazed at the range of furniture, bikes, prams, excercise equipment, books, clohting and toys etc. If you visit on a Saturday before 2.30pm you can get a delicious breakfast.brunch/lunch upstairs at the Black Dyke Heritage Centre.
