This past year the group have raised money from quizzes, two bazaars and ,thanks to Jan Thomas, sold second hand books. The money raised has furnished a new classroom at the junior school and bought some lovely new books for the younger children.
They have also helped fund the cat neutering program on the island. They have committed to pay for a projector for the school and propose to help pay for curtains or blinds in the new classroom. Another proposed project is to subsidise the cost of a new defibrillator machine for the medical centre. This is really great work by the Fun(d) Raising Group and they would like to thank you all for your support over the past few years and in advance for the years to come.
Please continue to give generously.
