Aid for midwife crisis

A PENICUIK charity is looking to drum up more support for its latest fundraising appeal.

Penicuik for Africa is working to meet its 26,000 target to re-open the midwifery school in Chitambo in Zambia. So far it has raised over 2,000 from a stall at the Christmas street fair.

The next event is a Pampered Chef cookery show in Howgate Village Hall on 17 January at 2pm. Admission is free.
