£15,800 has been banked as a result of the street collections on the Island the first weekend in May. Thank you very much to those who stood on the streets and to so many who gave very generously. It was astonishing to see so many notes and more silver than copper in the buckets.
In addition, Shakti Man (the Fairtrade shop in Ramsey) raised £3,000+ from a raffle and this will support the Fairtrade producers in Nepal that have been affected by the earthquake.
£3,000 was also raised by a retiring collection at the two ticketed events of the Guild. This will be split between three smaller charities working in Nepal.
The Rotary Club are promoting their shelter boxes and so far another £8,000 has been contributed to this.
Well done to all, and many thanks for the difference you are making in the lives of those affected by the earthquake in Nepal
