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.”
