Newsletter 42 - Fundraising Events - September 2017
Updated: Jul 23, 2018
Dear friends and supporters of our orphanage and school in Kenya,
Just a quick note to share with you some really good news. On 5 September one of our girl orphans named Veronica entered a University. Hopefully she will be the first of many who will follow her. This has only been made possible by your continued support and donations. At The Olive Branch Foundation we applaud you and we look forward to keeping you informed of more and more success stories like that of Veronica. We will also keep you posted of her progress through the university.
On Saturday 30th September, The Olive Branch Foundation will have a presence at the St. Matthews day fair in the centre of Liskeard. If you're in the area, drop by and say hello and meet some of the who will be there.
We also have a fundraising event being organised at the moment. This will be held on Saturday 24th February 2018. It is what we are calling a charity auction of promises, although not only pledges of services and donations but that of anything else of good quality that we can lay our hands on. Again, if you are local to us, please come along and support what is going to be a fun event. It is possible that your house will be full of unwanted Christmas gifts at that time of year, so there is an opportunity for you to donate them. We will auction them on the day and as usual every penny raised will reach those children. Search your attics also for that family heirloom. We will collect them nearer the time. All the contact details of our trustees are on the website, so you can ring, text or email one of us with what you have to be auctioned. Although the event is a good few months away, it’s never too early to start thinking and planning.
We are looking forward to seeing many of you at the auction, so please put that date in the diary – 24th of February 2018 at the Public Hall, West Street in Liskeard.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and for continuing to support those children through The Olive Branch Foundation.
Highest regards to you all,
