Welcome to Comberton, Cambridgeshire!

It is with great sadness that we announce the unexpected death of Mark Bennett, resident of Comberton, former Parish Councillor, creator of this website, and the Founder and Managing Director of AfriConnect based in Comberton following a short illness in Lusaka, Zambia.

Mark was buried in our local churchyard, following a short service at 10:30am on Friday 6th. March, at St. Mary's Church. Two weeks later there will the main Memorial Service, celebrating his life, at 3pm on Friday 20th. March in the Wesley Methodist Church at Christ Pieces in Cambridge CB1 1LG.

His family hope to setup a fund in his name name to provide quality education to Zambia's poorest children (details will be posted later).

Mark leaves us with many precious memories and his vision of a bright future for health and education in Africa and beyond. Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family and all who knew him.
