At last the hostel for blind and visually impaired pupils at Katente West Primary School in Mubende, Uganda, is almost finished!. There is an update in Sue Errington's report of the visit she made in September. But of course, now that the building itself is complete, the next focus is to complete building a block of latrines - and then furnish and equip it. Tom Errington completed the Great West Run in aid of the hostel for visually impaired children at Katente West Primary School - donations are still welcome at http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/TomErrington1
