20150426 Let’s get Geoff to Uganda

The Wairarapa’s most prominent photographer, Geoff Walker, organised a fundraising event at Colombo Winegrowers. This was to aid in getting Geoff off to Uganda to assist in Ludok in being more self-sufficient. I was impressed how Geoff could organise child sponsorships where ALL of the money went to the child and their community. No middle agency involved.

If you want to assist in Geoff’s efforts, he has a give a little page setup. Geoff has been to Uganda before and has spent a decent amount of time understanding what people need. So any money pledged will be targeted towards efforts that will benefit the Ugandan people in the long run.

Keeping the setup simple
I kept the setup for this really simple. I was surprised at how well the Mackie SRM-350’s behaved in the open air.
The event was very well catered by local providers

The AKG D5 performing like a condenser
I was also rather pleased at how well the AKG D5 picked up the speeches at this distance.

It was amazing to be a part of an event where the whole community chips in and comes together. A big thanks to the wonderful team at Martinborough Village for doing the promotional work.
