Christmas Box project
Thank you! to those who have helped with the Christmas Box project this year: giving, packing, writing labels… We have received thanks and photos from most of the groups; boxes for Abancay will go this week, accompanied by Penny & Juan Carlos Marcés, Anna Bygrave and one other. There will be a full report with pictures on the website and noticeboard when we return. There will also be a lunch for those who have helped….
