A fundraising butchery evening was hosted
by Simon Taylor of Surrey Hills Butchers in Oxshott this week. The attendees watched a demonstration on lamb and pork breakdown, followed a demonstration on how to tie a butcher’s knot and how to bone, stuff and roll a chicken for roasting. A very productive and enjoyable fundraiser. Thank you Simon the butcher!

Nicki Galazka’s coffee morning and sale last week was, once again, a great success. A selection of gorgeous gift stalls brimming with possible Christmas gifts, homemade cakes, coffee, warmth and conversation. A successful fundraiser for the GRCT and a wonderful community event here. Thank you to all stall holders, volunteers and supporters.
Ingirid Morrison and her community in Orkney have once again raised an extremely generous amount for the provision of e’Pap to children in the Knysna area. We are very grateful for their continued support.
A report back from Ingirid:
“Since my first visit to the children of the Knysna townships in 2009, I have been delighted to see the changes both in their health and education. I have been privileged to visit them every year since so have been able to appreciate the difference we are making in the lives of this generation of township children. As a teacher I know the benefit of children starting the day after having a good breakfast. Their concerntration is improved and they are more ready to learn.”
The Royal Parks Half marathon took place on Sunday 9 October. 16,000 runners, gloriously sunny Autumn weather, lovely London parks. Four runners ran the marathon in order to raise money for the GRCT – Kofo Oyeleye, Colleen Theron, Jonathan Bates and Catherine Michell. Almost £4,000 was raised. Well done runners and thank you so much!
