A small group with about 20 members proved that with hard work and unity, they could achieve their goals in making a difference in Agave. Their fund raising event was very successful and well attended.

The Brixton Town Hall was nicely decorated and transformed into a valentine ambience by Millicent Pedrigrino-Addo and Mrs Kabu Charway. The hall way was decorated with photos of the children at the Agave using the tables and chairs purchased by the association. Most people were at the event prior to the beginning and were not disappointed.

The two volunteers sponsored by the association to go to Agave were also present with their families, students from a London University and a wide variety of people from all cultures.

Guests came from as far as Birmingham, Brighton, Hampshire, London and New York to attend the function. The association even had a call from; one Mr. Humphrey Zigah from Canada who could not attend but made a pledge to help financially. The event was vibrant throughout the evening and everyone felt happy and joined in the Agbadza and boboboo dance spontaneously.

It came to a time that there was no one sitting and the dance floor was packed.
