LewesLight - festival of light

SolarAid seeks to address multiple issues in the developing world - climate change, health, economic prosperity and sustainability with an innovative approach to solar powered LED lighting.

Join LewesLight to hear Jamie McCloskey of Solar-Aid tell us of the innovative work they carry out in Africa.


17th January 7.00pm, Linklater Pavilion, Lewes

SolarAid is an international charity, founded in 2006 to combat poverty and climate change. Providing access to solar lights in Uganda, Malawi and Zambia to help catalyse solar markets and eradicate the kerosene lamp.

In Africa, where SolarAid works, night falls early and the only light available to 600 million people is the flickering, toxic and highly polluting flame of the kerosene lamp.
