  1. To whom it may concern,

    Able Child Africa is a leading charity in the UK specialising in disability in Africa. We work with five partner organisations based in East and Southern Africa. We want to see a world in which all disabled children are able to achieve their full potential and fully participate in the world around them.

    We are holding our annual donor dinner in early November, an prestigious event which attracts a mixture of charity trustees, individual donors and sponsors. Last year the event was held in the Inner Temple and there were 110 attendees.

    For this year’s event, we are currently looking for an African musician based in London to provide some entertainment on the night. Could you suggest any African musician who would be willing to play on the night free of charge or at a very reduced charity rate?

    If you would like more information about where we work and what we do, please visit our website (

    Kind regards,

    Dave Baines

    Administrative Intern
