BLINC Copa Sandino 2008

Teams of BLINC volunteers worked this summer at Latitude, Glastonbury, Leeds and Reading festivals raising hundreds of pounds for our projects. Also in October Dave Vangasse ran the Kingston half marathon for BLINC after recovering from a serious shoulder operation. Well done to all our fundraisers.
Each year the Copa Sandino
 tournament takes place every May and has raised over £16,000 for projects in Puerto Morazan.

This years’ funds from La Copa have helped refurbish the El Chavo nursery school.
