Return of the Vuvuzela

Growing support for the work of Bishop Simeon Trust

Bishop David Bannermann of the Highveld, Johannasberg, South Africa, has been visiting several schools and fundraising groups as part of his mission to spread the word of the Bishop Simeon Trust.  

As a charity, we serve to support and empower people affected by HIV/AIDS in South Africa and we have partnered with HABSR (Highveld Anglican Board of Social Responsibility), along with other partnerships to enable this mission.

So what is our responsibility and why should we respond?  As Bishop David so clearly described it in a school yesterday - the word 'LOVE' is a verb.  It is a doing word.  And therefore to show love to someone is to show it through actions, not just words.  

Working with HABSR, BSTrust is seeking how to show love and compassion to people through our actions.  

Bishop David has been sharing the work of the Orphans and Vulnerable Children programme with primary schools in Oxfordshire through sharing stories, teaching Zulu songs and even playing the vuvuzela!  Our thanks go to Leafield CE Primary School and Finstock CE Primary School for their support for the work of BSTrust.

A big part of our work here at the Bishop Simeon trust is committed to assuring that children and young adults in South Africa are able to challenge and conquer those obstacles in their lives that prevent them from accessing education and assuring that they can  make the most of the potential they possess to thrive and build a positive future.
