Many thanks to all who supported despite the bad weather – friends who ran the raffle, tombola, cake stall and made the drinks and washed up.

A huge van and trailer full of donated goods went to Essex on June 1 and will be on its way out to the Ukraine next month.

I have had an urgent appeal from our friends at Felsted Aid for toiletries of any kind, that we would find and use in our bathrooms.

Two thousand children each year are treated at the revival centre and the majority of them don't have a toothbrush.

Toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, shampoo and toilet rolls will be very gratefully received.

Three more trips are going out this year in August, October and December and any donated goods can be left at 17 Mulgrave Road.

Please leave your name and number so I can say thank you.
