As well as supporting worthy causes at home, our club is helping to fund several projects abroad aimed at improving the lives of people afflicted by poverty, famine, disease, other natural disasters and the appalling effects of war.
Here are just some of the ways we are trying to help this year.
A substantial donation to the Disasters Emergency Committee appeal to help tackle EBOLA
SHELTER BOXES which provide temporary accommodation and other vital equipment for families made homeless by natural disasters or by having to seek refuge from warfare
SHOE BOXES filled with gifts for impoverished children and adults in Eastern Europe
Helping to provide drinking water by the creation of SAND DAMS in Africa and India
Supporting the MALAWI WATER AND TOILET PROJECT which provides basic but essential sanitation in deprived areas
