Mr Anthony Lipmann is the Managing Director of Lipmann Walton & Co Ltd which was established in 1953 by Eric Lipmann as a firm of metals & minerals merchants. Lipmann Walton which is a member of the Minor Metals Trade Association, in 2008 initiated a link between the minor metals industry and the mining community of Mufulira in Zambia, at the heart of the Copperbelt to foster the ongoing efforts of the people of Castle Cary in Somerset who initiated a link between schools in this part of UK and Mufulira since 1995.

In light of these developments The Cary-Mufulira Community Partnership Trust (CMCPT) was established, as well as its counterpart in Zambia, the Mufulira Cary Community Partnership Trust (MCCPT). Building durable links where both Zambia and UK communities can learn from each other has been the ethos. These organizations have embarked on programs to improve the educational standards of Mufulira in schools which include; Mufulira High School, Mano Basic, Muleya Winter Basic and many more which all do their best to provide an education that will satisfy the demands of a growing middle class.

Mr Lipmann and Flora Godfrey Henry a 15 year old who visited Zambia last year as part of Ansford Academy’s student exchange programme will be our guests on the show to discuss their work and experiences in Mufulira.
