I conclude with a thank you for your continuing generosity during particularly hard times for the charities themselves.
Church Charities Treasurer
CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young)
Thank you so much for your kind donation of £127.55 from your retiring collections. It will enable us to progress our campaign to reduce the number of young sudden cardiac deaths and the heartbreak that follows such a tragic loss. The funds will be used for our very ambitious initiatives, which include supporting medical research, subsidising CRY screening clinics and CRY literature and information. We also provide Bereavement services and fast track Pathology for affected families.
Thank you for your kind donation of £110.92 which will bring safe water, sanitation and improved hygiene to some of the poorest people in the world.
Your donation could contribute to the installation of a handpump and the training of local members of the community to repair and maintain it. Ram Kanthi is one of the many women WaterAid has helped to train, transforming her livelihood and the health of her community. We learnt to repair the pumps so that when they break down we can fix them as quickly as possible. Ram Kanthi, Mahoba region, India. Your help is hugely appreciated and will enable us to help more people like Ram.
Thanks to you all for your kind donation of £85.47. Whizz-

The Elizabeth Foundation
Thank you so much for your donation of £29.40. We are delighted that you have chosen our charity to support on this occasion, and would like to pass on our grateful thanks to you all.
I am in receipt of your cheque for £45.16 and would like to give a big thank you to everyone for their very kind donations. With the financial climate as it is at the moment, I find it really encouraging and heart warming that people will still put their hands in their pockets to give to someone else in need.
Havant Portage Service
Many thanks for your generous donation of £104.83 collected for the children and families who receive support from our service. We are so grateful for your continued support, which enables us to offer social events and purchase new toys or equipment.
Please pass on our heartfelt thanks to the church and your congregation.
