Minibus donation to Zimbabwe
A NURSE from Shepton Mallet Treatment Centre was given a minibus to help children in Zimbabwe.
While working with Maurice Day, from Wells, Cosmore Gweshe, began discussing the living conditions so different from our own.
Cosmore, from Zimbabwe, told Maurice that he helped a Samaritan charity that supplied old minibuses, amongst other things, to local schools where children have to walk anything up to 20 miles a day to be taught.
After hearing this, Maurice decided to try and help. He said: “I appealed to a few friends on Facebook and people came forward straight away.”

So with the backing of other sponsors they managed to gather £700 to purchase a second hand minibus.
Everyone presented the bus to Cosmore at the Shepton treatment centre.
Cosmore expressed his thanks and explained how much of a difference it would make to the school and that it would be tremendous.
He has promised to send photos of the bus in action when it arrives in about eight weeks time.
