 New stretch target

Surplus funds raised for the Exeter Kindness Mural will go to support the charities housed in the Crossline building. This includes the Exeter Soup Kitchen which provides meals to homeless people most days of the week.  Kondanani UK is providing financial oversight of the project and GiftAid. A portion of the funds raised will go to supporting the orphaned youngsters at Kondanani Children's Village in Malawi and its Paediatric Hospital which helps prevent mortality amongst children 1-5. 

Veteran artist, Paul Colsell has a vision for an Exeter Kindness Mural that will fix and brighten up a drab wall in the centre of town with an inspirational iconic Charlie Makesy illustration from the best-selling book, 'The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and the Horse'.

Paul (82) will brave 10m high scaffolding to paint the iconic mural onto the Crossline Building which houses the Exeter Soup Kitchen. The mural will cost about 5,000. This includes resurfacing the existing wall, scaffolding, paint, materials etc as well as the cost of promoting the project. Paul will not be paid for his work. He sees it as a gift to the city.

The Exeter Kindness Mural is a project of Kondanani UK a British charity based in Exeter which exists to alleviate poverty. Beneficiaries of the project include the charities in the building, including the Soup Kitchen with the hope we can upgrade the cooking facilities.  We also hope to give a gift to orphaned children in Africa.
