THE work by the Daventry Friends of Iganga will be highlighted at their AGM.

The friends were set up 11 years ago to promote the links between Daventry and the Ugandan town of Iganga.

The Friends have improved water sources, set up new clinics and improved hospital conditions, and helped with an orphanage and school for blind children.

On Friday, March 22, there will be an AGM followed by reports on visits, including from teachers and students at Danetre School.

Jan Morrott will also update on the links forged between local schools and ones in Iganga. Tom Jackson, from Water for Kids, will then talk about new projects in Iganga, and Peter Minhinett will round off the evening talking about his recent visit.

The AGM takes place on March 22 at 7pm in Daventry Methodist Church, Golding Close, near the leisure centre.
