These have been to a variety of developing countries – Ukraine, Nigeria (2), India (3) and Kenya. We are now looking for new projects for the coming year (which starts in October). So, if you know of any small independent projects in any country in the developing world which would benefit from a donation of £1000, please could you contact our Parish Representative, Marie Ward 01322 555 553 to get more information and an application form.
