Eid Appeal up-date

We did it!

HUGE thanks to all of those that contributed to this years Eid Appeal by sending in donations of clothing, toys, sweets and money to buy those things!

Right up to the last minute people have been sending in and dropping  off treats and goodies for the children in Algeria.  Thanks to everyone’s over whelming generosity we reached our target of 750 gifts, well actually we surpassed it by collecting a grand total of 762!! The last of these Eid gifts were parcelled up today and will be shipped tomorrow.

So far July is proving to be a busy month,what with all the last minute Eid Appeal preparations and general goings on. We did also attend a local school event on the 7th of the month which despite the rain was a really fun day!

The rest of the month will be spent putting the finishing touches to a really exciting fundraising event being planned for early October. I hope all you crafty types will be willing to lend a hand as lots of hand-crafted goodies will be needed!

Enjoy what’s  left of July and for those that participate,
