Updated July 2012
The children have worked really hard this year
raising money for Mustard Seed Project. They have collected pennies in jars,
baked cakes and are now buying bricks for us to start building our new school.
The children have also written letters to the children at Miche Bora and
received replies from very happy Kenyan children. It's an exciting thing for the
children in both countries to learn quite how much they have in common.

Northborough school have come up trumps again raising more than £200. They have
continued to save pennies and twopences in a jar for Mustard Seed which is
making a great difference to our children especially in light of the drought in
Thanks to a magnificent effort by Year 3 who had a cake sale their jar held
almost £70. Thank you year 3. What a difference that will make.
Finally a special mention for Libby Cawsey in year 2. She brought in pennies
almost every day and managed to raise over £9 by herself. Well done Libby.
Many Northborough children have been writing to the children at Miche Bora
school and the trustees have been acting as couriers for the letters. The
children love receiving the letter and it is great for them to know that
children in the UK are interested in. They too are curious about the children in
England. Now Miche Bora has it's own address so that children can write to
them directly at Miche Bora Primary School, PO
, Mombasa, Kenya.
Updated April 2011 Northborough School continue to generously support Mustard Seed Project. In the
Spring term 2011 Year 5 raised £30 through a cake sale in school. Well done Year

Zoe Stott in Year 6 was recently sponsored to undertake a Fun Run for Mustard
Seed Project. Zoe managed to raise £40 completely by her own effort. This makes
a huge difference to our children. Well done Zoe and thank you so much for your
efforts. They are greatly appreciated.
The children and staff at Northborough Primary School continue to actively
support Mustard Seed Project and their school Miche Bora Primary School by
collecting loose change in sweet jars.
Amazingly, in the autumn term children collected £183.53. Even more amazing is
the fact that it was Foundation who lead the way. Three weeks before the
end of term there was a plea for a new sweet jar as the original jar had
collapsed under the weight. In just 10 weeks the children had collected £58.33.
This is a record amount which will make a huge difference to our children in
