- The first shipment of 25 Instruments have arrived in Mombasa to replace those lost in the fire which destroyed the Hall at Mombasa in the latter part of last year. The Kenya Trust is preparing a second shipment and would like to thank all those that have contributed Instrument for this project or donated funds to assist with shipment and maintenance costs. Thanks particularly go to the Instrument Repair Business in Nairobi for their work in ensuring Instruments were in good playable condition prior to their arrival in Mombasa. Thanks also to Charley Brighton, Staines, for his maintenance work on a number of Instruments. If anyone would specifically like to support this project in donating towards the shipment costs it would be greatly appreciated.
