A Message from Tricia

Thank you to everyone who supported The Martin Lawrence Memorial Trust in 2017 enabling us to continue our support for Belvoir Cricket & Countryside Trust's School Days, SKRUM'S outreach to the youth of Swaziland, Rutland Osprey Project and to complete our 3 year commitment to Send a Cow's Wolayita Project in Ethiopia.

At our November Trustees Meeting it was agreed that MLMT should cease at the end of our financial year, 31 January 2018. The trustees felt so much had been achieved and wanted to end on a 'high' and felt our Celebration Party last October was a fitting final event. Remaining funds and our 2017 Gift Aid Rebate will be distributed equally between our 3 main charities - Belvoir Cricket & Countryside Trust, SKRUM and Send a Cow.

I, personally, have committed to support Send a Cow's Dawuro Livelihoods Project for the next 3 years and will be going to Ethiopia in November 2018 on an Expo Trip and visiting this new project area and also groups supported by MLMT in Wolayita district. Send a Cow would welcome any MLMT supporters to join me (and Toby Buckland, the TV gardening presenter and journalist, who has recently become a Send a Cow patron)

One final e-newsletter will go to everyone on our mailing list in due course. I do hope to keep in touch with many old friends - e: tricia.lawrence@sendacow.org.

Thanks again and best wishes for 2018
