Some of you may know that my husband Peter started an amazing festival in a village in Gambia called Kartong in 2005. The festival has blossomed and now attracts lots of vistitors which brings much needed trade into the village. The local people have taken on the running of the festival with almost no outside help now but the ticket sales only cover half the cost of running the festival. We want to keep ticket prices low so local people can afford to attend so we are appealing through this Kickstarter campaign for pledges to raise £1,000 for the 10th anniversary celebration in February 2015. Please pledge if you can – every pound goes miles further in Gambia due to the exchange rate!
