Alton Webteam: September 2015
Charity event for The Leprosy Mission and Home-Start Weywater
Thank you to everyone who helped, and to all those who kindly made donations in exchange for travel guides, at my event at home on 9/10 September.
I am pleased to be able to say that as a result, and with the addition of money made from earlier sales I will be sending cheques to each of the charities for £300.
I am hoping to add to this as I find ways of raising money from the remaining guides and maps!
