Sales made a profit of about £149 – many thanks to those who supported us.

Delhi Brotherhood Society Annual Report 2017

The educational work that the Wye and Brook India Trust supports is carried out by the Delhi Brotherhood Society. Their annual report has a lot of information about all the work they do – including education. There is a lovely tribute to one of our longstanding Trustees, Sheila Child, who died in December 2016.

Fantastic Coffee morning!

Being able to use the church building unimpeded by static pews obviously made a difference:

This year we made an amazing £2,475.33, about enough to put 25 children through school for one year!

Thank you to everyone who donated, helped, baked, bought, cleared up, grew plants etc.
