This year’s Tadworth & Walton Overseas Aid Trust Christmas Appeal relates to two schools that we currently support by contributing to teachers’ salaries. One is run by the Mothers’ Union in Madagascar and the other, Emmanuel School, is for Burmese/Myanmar refugee children. We hope to raise at least £1,000 to help with their running costs in 2018 and in particular to ensure that each child receives a lunch-time meal. For some children this might be the only meal they have that day and it is well known that learning is more effective when children are not famished.
Donations can be made online via our web site WWW.TWOAT.ORG or by cheque, made to TWOAT, or cash sent to our Treasurer John Tedder at 103, Shelvers Way, Tadworth, KT20 5QQ. We can provide Gift Aid declarations if you are a UK tax payer and have not already made out one for us.
We are pleased to report that our Annual Social Meeting raised nearly £1200 in donations and we will be following up with the speaker from the Helwel Trust further details of the libraries they are supporting in poor rural areas of South Africa.
