Hi Everyone!
Jim and I recently returned from France. Unfortunately our visit was initially delayed by three weeks thanks to the flu and had to be cut short as after we arrived I picked up another virus. However, we did have time to do a little volunteering and to deliver all our donated items. Many thanks to everyone who contributed towards this, we received so many wonderful goods ranging from tents and bedding to warm clothes and toiletries. Some of these were brand new and also with money generously donated I was able purchase, at good prices, £350 worth of thermal underwear sets and £750 worth of 4season sleeping bags. Our visit might have been brief but its timing couldn't have been better. France is experiencing the same weather that we have here and your donations will be helping to save the lives of refugees who are having a tremendous struggle to survive these freezing conditions.
Again, thank you so very much.
