I know it’s early to be thinking about Christmas but I want to share a thought with you.  Every year I spend about £100 on Christmas cards and postage but last year I sent cards to only a few relatives and friends who don’t use the internet – yes, there are still a few around.  Everybody else received virtual greetings and the money I saved was donated to my favourite charity, the Ghanaian Children’s Trust.  I’ll be doing it again this year.  Would you consider doing likewise?  With charities struggling to raise money during the coronavirus pandemic, they need all the help they can get to continue with the vital work they do.

The support the Ghanaian Children’s Trust is giving to the children at King Jesus Charity Home in Ghana is even more important now, as the children are being home-schooled during the pandemic. The laptops and educational support we’ve provided are vital to their education.  Also, as they are all in the house all day and night, the food and electricity bills have greatly increased.  The Ghanaian Children’s Trust is doing all it can to raise funds via virtual fundraising events as, sadly, all our actual events have been cancelled.  This includes the charity’s annual dinner that was scheduled for October.  You can keep up to date with our planned virtual events via our Facebook page.   https://www.facebook.com/Ghanaianchildrenstrust

Best wishes to you all and I hope you stay safe and well during these difficult times.
