School, Vocation, Start-Up ... and Football
7 January 2020
We have just sent a cheque for £4,683 to FISCH to enable 67 children to attend school, ten to receive vocational training, three girls to begin a sewing business together, and 32 kids to play in one of the FISCH United teams. Part of the money pays for provision of uniform and stationery, without which children cannot take up their free school places (ten secondary and 57 primary). The vocational training is to provide opportunities to become taxi drivers, electricians, mechanics, and other trades. Football boots will enable the kids to play against other local teams.
Historic Croquet Match
16 August 2014
Many thanks to Tidenham History Group for donations at their annual croquet match and tea at Redwick House. Including the sum to be reclaimed under the Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme, £40 was raised for the Music in Africa Appeal. The croquet was brief and the tea indoors because the weather was so cold. Nevertheless it was a great social occasion as always, and the afternoon was over too quickly. (A photo is awaited.)
