While our donations held up extremely well in the first half of the year we are now finding it increasingly hard to raise funds. We are glad that our reserves were at a healthy level at the start of the pandemic, though we are now beginning to dip into them. Our Christmas Appeal will run from November 25 to December 25 and we do hope you will think of us particularly during this period. All your donations then will be matched (i.e. doubled!) by trustee pledges and most donations will also benefit from Gift Aid.
