Nigeria Independence Day at Challenger House

It was the young people who brought to my attention that 1 October was Nigeria Independence Day. They wanted to mark it because one of the young people in our placement is Nigerian and new with us. So it was a great way for everyone to introduce themselves and celebrate the occasion with her.

We'd like to hear what you think!
