News from Tadworth & Walton Overseas Aid Trust
Christchurch in Walton-on-the-Hill was the venue for “Sing Carols” led by Reverend John Gordon to raise funds for TWOAT. The highlight of the evening was provided by a choir from Walton Primary School who beautifully performed a repertoire of songs from their Christmas Show based on Dickens’ story of Scrooge. The generosity of those attending contributed over £350 to TWOAT’s 2019 Christmas Appeal to provide funds for various schools that TWOAT supports.
