The group has been going for some 20 years and supports four overseas charities.

- Tanzanear https://tanzanearuk.orguk.org
- Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia https://hamlinfistula.org

The group held a variety of events during 2019 and raised over £2,000 Events included Soup and Scrabble lunches which are held on the first Friday of the month, providing refreshments after a Carol service and a Winter lunch.
In 2019 we sent donations to the four charities the group support. A slightly larger sum of was sent to Sightsavers due to a donation being marked especially for them.
Future events include:
Friday 24th January - Winter lunch when a speaker from Tanzanear will be explaining the issues facing deaf children in Tanzania
Friday 7th February - "Soup and Scrabble" at 12 noon at Udimore Village Hall. Tickets are £5 which includes soup and bread and a one hour game of scrabble followed by tea and biscuits.
