Link Launches disaster appeal

The Hastings Sierra Leone Friendship Link has launched a disaster recovery appeal after the tragic events have seen hundreds of people die and hundreds more missing after flash floods and landslips hit areas of Freetown and surrounding neighbourhoods in the peninsular area of Sierra Leone. Thousands made homeless as torrents of rain and mud raged through Regent and other settlements close to Freetown in Sierra Leone on Monday night. Entire families and houses were swept away. Survivors were trapped in the mud, amongst the wreckage and in the flood waters whilst the rain continued to pour down. 

Quiz Night 2016

£2,400 raised for twin town in Sierra Leone

The Hastings Sierra Leone Friendship Link’s annual quiz night was a roaring success, raising just over £2,400 to help fund projects in its twin town of Hastings in Sierra Leone. A record number of teams took part in the quiz at the Ark William Parker Academy and last year’s winners, The Blackbirds, were pipped at the post by newcomers The Twinners. The wooden spoon was carried off without a blush by Never Been Quizzed. The Friendship Link reports.
