This event was made possible by Librairie La Page, a French bookshop in South Kensington and their staff and also by the volunteers (Nathalie, Caroline) and new interns and staff of Children of the Mekong.
This campaign was hosted from the 31st of August to the 9th of September 2018 from 10am to 4pm. We chose these dates because it coincided with a busy period for the bookshop (beginning of the new school year).
The stand in front of the shop turned out to be a good idea. Our volunteers for this campaign were really motivated. Their hard work ensured the campaign was successful.
One of the volunteers Caroline had this to say about her volunteering experience:
“It was well organised, the stand in front of the shop was a good idea to raise funds. It was important for us not to be shy and to engage in conversation with the customers outside the shop to tell them about the charity”.
