Many thanks to each and every person who attended or supported our Vintage Afternoon Tea Party last Sunday 28th June 2015.
Your generosity is truly amazing, we raised €2,710.

This amount will provide 30 families (of 5 people) with the following earthquake relief supplies: tarpaulin, warm clothing, blankets, food and medicine for a month.  It is profit from the afternoon tea tickets, generous donations, craft sales and the raffle.

It very much exceeds our wildest expectations!

SHUFFLE for a SHUTTLE

Thank you to all who sponsored us in the  VHI Women’s Mini Marathon on 1st June 2015 in Dublin

We are raising funds to provide transport for patients to and from Lalgadh Leprosy Hospital. Public bus transport leaves patients on the main road just outside Bardibas village and the last part of the journey to the hospital is all uphill. We commenced this fund in early 2014.
