A donation of £500 was presented to Kathy Miller of the Charity by Laurence Kettle, Chairman of the International Committee. Kathy expressed her thanks for the club’s continued support. She described two recent projects where the charity has been able to help the boys’ home purchase a new mini-bus to take the boys to and from their schools, and a solar panel installation for heating water.


The club has an on-going commitment to the Neem Tree Trust, having made several previous donations.
