Bristol Beira 2018 Calendar out now

Bristol Link to Beira Calendars are now available to order


This year’s calendars also include a quote by Bristol’s mayor Reeds:

Given my experience working on development issues through the Jubilee 2000 campaign, I have been keen to follow Beira’s journey over the past few years. Mayor Simango has delivered on several key engineering projects for Beira which have mitigated the effects of climate change and effectively made the city free from flooding which has been its biggest problem for decades. I would like to encourage everyone to support the work of the Bristol Link with Beira both here and in Mozambique.”

Following the visit to Bristol by the mayor of Beira, Daviz Simango, and Hamid Taybo, the CEO of our sister organisation in Beira, you can support our work in Mozambique by buying an attractive limited edition calendar : only 200 are available now!

Offering some stunning images of Beira and its citizens taken by young Beira Fund photographer Lewis Blakeman during his placement in the city, they make great Xmas presents too!

Cake sale for BLB at Clifton High school, Bristol

“We have  had our cake sale to support the Bristol Beira link and were rather amazed to raise £132! This is a record amount in this school for a cake sale!! Every child in Year 2 made cakes and it was very well supported so a good effort by our 6 and 7 year olds.

Letter from Beira 5, Food

I didn’t pack anything special, mostly junk food to be honest: Pot Noodle, packet-pasta, cereals. It’s now nearly April and I’ve still got most of it left. I’ll…
