Following the bike ride on the 6th June ACEF hosted a special birthday bash for long established supporters. As well as celebrating the 5th birthday of the charity it was also a special birthday celebration for Liz Formby, the driving force behind ACEF. Friends and supporters were keen to toast her and congratulate her on the achievement of her MBE in the New Years Honours list.
A poignant moment was when Liz read out the following from Aggrey, the Principal at Brainhouse Academy.
I do not know how to say this, not because I lack words to say but because I think that the words I have are not enough to express our gratitude towards your excellent work. The work you have been doing has really transformed the institution and gone so far towards improving academic performance in our institution.
How I wish you would all be here today to celebrate with us and to see how happy the Brainhouse community is proud of your work. We always pray for you guys so that God may always give you strength for you to be able to fulfil your mission.
It is only through Liz’s e-mail today that I have realised that this programme is in its 5th year. To us it’s like it has always been around. This is because of the great work that you are doing and have been doing. I would not say much as today is a day for you to celebrate with us this mutual relationship.
As you celebrate, please note that we are also celebrating with you back here in Kenya. Have a lovely evening and thank you very much for all your support. Thank you once again and may God shower you with his showers of blessings.”
