The Sumo Run is coming to Edinburgh!
The Sumo Run returns to the Meadows in Edinburgh on 4th October 2015 – Make sure you don’t miss out!
As we get closer and closer to Sumo Run 2015, we are getting more and more excited here at Link Community Development. Having sold out self-funded places already, we are expecting this year’s run to be the biggest yet!
Link has been working with the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology in Malawi since 2006 to improve the provision of quality education. Together we have developed a considated set of National Education Standards which apply to all primary and secondary schools in Malawi. These Standards set out the minimum level of quality which all schools in Malawi must deliver and higher levels of performance to which all schools can aspire. This enables government, schools and communities to focus their efforts on achieving the same goals for school improvement.
Volunteers' Week 2015
Every year charities across the country celebrate the work of their volunteers. Fundraising Officer Jake Laws reflects on his experiences of volunteering with Link.
September 2015 marks four years of involvement with Link Community Development for me. Back in 2011, when I had just started University, my friend and I decided to sign up for Link’s signature fundraising event, Hitch. I can safely say that I did not know that the decision we made on the second week of term in 2011 would make the impact on my life that it has!
