MAI’s first Christmas Cracker event held recently proved a great success.

The fun-filled evening, blending video reports of our Partnership Projects, interviews with team volunteers and our new Chairman as well as Christmas music from the Abingdon Society of Bellringers and our friends from Charity Opera was well attended and the new format inspired the audience.

The crowd burst into applause at the end of the video showing the completion of the Clinic in Embo. “It was great to see the impact of what MAI achieves with our support”, said one person as the went out into the cold night.

As people left, there was a chance to select a Christmas Box gift for one of our projects. All in all, the evening raised £1,700 for a variety of MAI’s projects!
