Flower festival will aid Uganda.

A FLOWER festival will be held this weekend to raise money for a Coventry firefighter's appeal to help orphans in Uganda.

The event will be held at St James church, Tile Hill Lane, on Saturday from 10am to 5pm and on Sunday from 2pm to 6pm.

The flowers will be auctioned on Sunday to raise cash for Coventry fireman Nobby Clarke's appeal for the Luweero Medical Centre in Uganda.

Between June, 1999, and January, 2001, he raised pounds 30,000 for the centre in Uganda, where civil war and disease have created thousands of orphans.

Now pounds 3,500 must be raised each year to maintain the centre.

He said: "We employ a full-time nurse at the centre and have the assistance of doctors who give their time free but medicines have to be bought."

Appeal organisers want to find people interested in sponsoring the centre while doing the Coventry Fun Run on June 23.

Anyone interested should phone Nobby Clarke on 024 7646 7997.
