Butchery evening

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!

Thank you to the Orkney community


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.”

Royal Parks Half marathon

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!

10th Anniversary Tea and handing over the baton

Thankfully the rain stayed away for the GRCT’s 10th Anniversary Tea held on Saturday! The tea was an opportunity to express our gratitude to our supporters, whose generosity makes such a difference to the health and education of thousands of South African children. Penny Fleming also formally “handed over the baton” of leadership to Ruth Burns, our new chairperson, and Catherine Michell, her deputy. The charity will still benefit from Penny and Patrick’s wisdom and experience as they will continue to serve as trustees. Shelley Godsell, who heads up the e’Pap feeding project in Knysna, also attended the tea and was able to tell our supporters first hand about the difference their generosity makes.
