4 Charities (Brede & Udimore Overseas Group)
The group has been going for some 20 years and supports four overseas charities.
- Sightsavers https://www.sightsavers.org
- Deaf in Tanzania https://joshuaproject.net/people_groups/19007/TZ
- Armani Village of Hope,, Kenya
- Papua New Guinea Church Partnership http://www.pngcp.org.uk/
The group held a variety of events during 2017 and raised £1854.20. This was a resut of a sponsored walk which raised £415 in July, two Soup and Scrabble lunches, providing refreshments after a Carol service, a Winter lunch and the donations received from an endurance run by Matt Burrows. Very specia; thanks go to Matt for his amazing achievement running over 107 km along the North Down Way.
In January 2018 we sent £475 to the Deaf in Tanzania, Amani Orphanage in Kemya and the Papua New Guinea Church Partnership. A slightly larger sum of £500 was sent to Sightsavers due toa donation marked especially for them. All charities have expressed thanks for these donations.
Our next event will be "Soup and Scrabble" on Friday 18th January midday at Udimore Village Hall. Tickets are £5 and this includes soup and bread and a one hour game of scrabble followed by tea and biscuits. Tickets are limited so if you would like to join this funtime event.
