Fikelela Fund Raising for 2017. Each year we endeavour to raise money which is sent to St. Thomas’ Church, Rondeboshe, Cape Town for ‘outreach’ or Fikelela. This supports the work to help families on minute finances whilst bringing up AIDS-orphaned children. They deliver 150 monthly food parcels. Maria Branchini is running a coffee morning on Wednesday 9th August at the back of the church, 10.30 to noon. Please support this first of our summer fundraisers. Offers to host other events will be gratefully received. Contact Ruth Cousins on 020 8670 4673.
