Thank you for your continued support for this GlobalGiving project. It is one of the various ways we raise money for our Benevolent Fund, from which we are able to support deserving local, national and international charities.

Helped by the generosity of you, our GlobalGiving supporters, since our last report in July we have made the following donations:

  • £2,087 to TEECH (Telecoms Eastern European Challenge), a charity that installs sanitary ware into schools, orphanages and residences for the elderly in Moldova. It also delivers aid, including clothing, toys and shoes to nearby communities, many of which are under pressure supporting Ukrainian refugees. Our donation helped fund the costs of transporting this aid from the UK to Moldova.
  • £1,000 to The Smile Train, a charity that provides simple but life-changing operations for people with cleft palates living in resource-poor communities around the world. As well as performing the operations, the visiting specialists train local doctors in the techniques, so that operations can continue once the team returns to the UK.
  • £250 to Quilters Junior School, to cover postage costs for their inter-generational pen pals project, whereby pupils exchange letters with elderly Billericay residents and then entertain them for afternoon tea at the school at the end of the year..
  • £600 to Mary's Meals, a charity which provides school meals every day for over two million children across East Africa. We support it through the proceeds from a weekly wine raffle at our meetings. The children must attend school to get the meals, which helps ensure they can learn their way to a brighter future. 

Thank you once again for your continued support.
