Thank you so much

A huge thank you to everyone who supported my charity auction last Saturday.  It was a huge team effort and we raised (with gift aid) a whopping £3,500!  Together with such generosity through sponsorship, the total raised is now pushing £8,000!  This is fantastic and will purchase  160 water filters, providing clean water for at least 800 people for the rest of their lives.  Thank you so much.
