TNT & Pachawawas Get Together 2012

We gathered together some of our lovely volunteers and supporters in “La Ruca”, a Chilean run shop and cafe on Gloucester Road in Bristol, for a get together. Among the things we talked about were:

The promotional film that Nim Jethwa is going to make about Pachawawas and Traveller Not Tourist over the next 6 months (preview planned for November – get in touch if you have any video footage you’d like to donate to the project)

An exciting but unsuccessful bidding war for a video/still camera on eBay to send to Peru to facilitate the project mentioned above (do you have a spare camera you’d like to donate? Let us know if you have)

The unexpected but very generous offer of a laptop from Becky Hibberd (who is also set to run a sponsored half marathon for Pachawawas later this month – click here to sponsor her)

Plans for the Pachawawas AGM which will be held on October 13th in Bristol (click here for more information and to register your attendance)

Gillian Yeoman’s plans to collaborate with a couple of other previous orphanage volunteers in Edinburgh to recruit volunteers and possibly raise funds.

Nicola Pembridge’s Ikea shopping spree for items to take over to the orphanage on her imminent third volunteering trip

Luis Chavez’s delicious Mojitos and Cuba Libres (with Peruvian sized measures – it’s a wonder I can type at all today!)

Kyla Archers AMAZING Brownies, which she made for the cafe at the Photographic Exhibition earlier this year – Yum!

Bad hair stories – not really related but hilarious nonetheless!

Big thanks to those who came, commiserations to everyone who wanted to but couldn’t make it.

Don’t worry if you were unable to get to this event – you’ve still got lots of time to plan your attendance at the Pachawawas AGM on October 13th in Bristol. Hope to see you there!
