Three Oranges is pleased to sponsor a fundraising evening. Proceeds will go to Books with Wings (BWW). Books With Wings UK is a voluntary organisation dedicated to collecting books from universities in the UK and sending them to the universities in Afghanistan. There are almost 100 universities in Afghanistan that, due to ongoing wars for the last 35 years are very poorly stocked and, with your help, we want to form links between the students and universities of our two countries.

BWW (see Facebook page) originated in Canada in 2001 and since then has sent over 100,000 books. BWW UK is just starting this year. The Spanish Air Force has kindly offered to fly our books to Kabul and Herat, but we need to meet the packing and shipping costs of £200.00 from the UK to Spain. We hope this evening fundraiser will help.

The event will cost £10.00 per person, and will include oral storytelling with a theme of 'Stories from the Silk Road' and a pilaf dinner (meat or vegetarian options).

On the menu: Afghan Kabul-style pulao (pilaf). Spiced rice with lamb, carrots and sultanas. A vegetarian option will be also available. Salad. Middle Eastern pastries.

This is an informal evening, buffet style, plates on laps. Depending on how many people come, there may be enough chairs, otherwise it's cushions on the floor.

It would be great if anyone wants to tell an oral story from Afghanistan or the Silk Road – let’s say 10 minutes-ish per person? Or if you like, bring a dish to share! Email me: laura@threeoranges.com to let me know what you have in mind. Of course you’re welcome to just come and enjoy the event - stories will be told and food will be provided!

This is a BYOB event.

A lovely summer's evening, great location, scrumptious food and perfect hosts made this a fabulous evening. Oral storytelling added piqued interest and a touch of mystery.

What a great way to raise money for this charity.

Thank you Laura.
