Outreach to India
Members of the Mothers’ Union and their friends responded to a request from Dr George for small theatre gowns - more than 60 of these gowns were made and will be taken to India by

Dr George and his team for the children to wear when they
undergo cleft surgery in January. . . . . continued across

 

Thank you to the ladies who answered the call and to all who attended the fundraising afternoon at 10 Church Close helping to raise the magnificent sum of £1,500 which has been donated to the Northern Cleft Foundation – with every penny going to provide patient care.
