The Covid Rice Appeal as at 17th June 2020

the total raised to date has now reached £4,891.25 including Gift Aid, an amazing response. £3,000 has been sent and the remainder will go next week. Donations have slowed to a trickle now so the appeal will gradually be wound up although further donations can be made at any time using the bank details on the ‘donate’ page and referencing the transfer ‘Covid rice appeal’. Covid cases in Sierra Leone are still rising and they are still in lock down.

the second transfer was received at the end of last week and has been distributed already – see pictures below. Cecil the Head said everybody wanted their pictures taken and to say a huge thank you, but he simply couldn’t take and send all the pictures.

anyway here are some of them. You have all done a wonderful and life-saving job which is really appreciated and will be remembered for a long time. Well done and thank you!
