Four Charities (Brede & Udimore Overseas Group)

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

 

These are:

  • Sightsavers
  • Deaf in Tanzania
  • Armani Orphange, Kenya
  • Papua New Guinea Church Partnership

 

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 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 another Soup and Scrabble lunch on Thursday 31st May.  Matt is also undertaking another challenge in June when he takes part in the Dolomite Run.
