Mystery man donates £10k to St Mary's University's partner school
An anonymous donation of £10,000 has been given to St Mary’s University’s charity Strawberry Hill Overseas Community Concern (SHOCC).
The money will help to build a long-awaited dining hall for Orkolili School in Tanzania, one of the university’s lifetime partners.
The donor has promised even more, and will provide another £1 for every £1 donated, up to another £10,000.
SHOCC trustee Elizabeth Byrne Hill said: “This is terrific news. What an asset. The hall will not only make assemblies possible – which, of course, we take for granted in the UK – but it will become a community resource and generate funds for the school through lettings.”
