Gervase Phinn presenting the African Revival Appeal

Posted on by Elaine Miller

Renowned best selling children’s book author Gervase Phinn will be presenting the African Revival Appeal to the nation on BBC Radio 4, starting this weekend, asking for your kind support. A former school’s inspector, Gervase has spent most of his career working with children and teachers and understands all too well the power of education. His own humble background, and the difference education has made to him, has inspired him to present the appeal for African Revival.

Our UK fundraising team joined him in the studio recently and he explained why he has chosen to support us in the work that we do…


Your generous donation will be going to several projects set up in Zambia, Uganda and Sudan to give children access to education, opportunity and choice.

Make sure that you don’t miss the appeal! It will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 (online or LW and FM across the UK) at the following times: Sunday 15th May at 07.55 and 21:26 then again on Thursday 19th May at 15:27.

Last year, listeners raised over £1.5 million for BBC Radio 4 appeals. For more information about the appeal please visit

If you just can’t wait for the appeal, then you can donate now!
