On June 29, James & Tricia joined pupils attending a BELVOIR CRICKET & COUNTRYSIDE TRUST'S School Day and presented Darren Bicknell, Chief Executive, with our cheque to £5000, which completes our sponsorship of the 20 School Days held at Belvoir during the Summer Term.
In spite of wet weather in the afternoon, the 84 pupils attending had a great day and we were most impressed with the calibre and enthusiasm of the cricket coaches and the variety of countryside activities covered - including the handling of birds of prey like the Barn Owl in the picture.
On July 9 at our Summer Supper Party in Manton, we presented Tim Mackrill of RUTLAND OSPREY PROJECT with a cheque for £2500 to cover the cost of publishing 'Ozzie's Return' and our sponsorship of the recent Schools Osprey Festival - visit www.ospreys.org/osprey-fest for a full report and pictures. A big 'thank you' to Kevin & Sheer Amerigo for hosting drinks and providing the delicious canapes in their beautiful garden and everyone who helped at the Village Hall and supported the evening which raised £700 for MLMT funds.
On July 14 Stephen & Tricia met many friends on the Coronation Lawn at Lord's Cricket Ground for a picnic on the first day of the Test Match v Pakistan - including Alan & Angela Porter who were enjoying a day at Lord's after bidding for the Cricket Auction Lot at our Dinner last October.
FUTURE EVENTS -
We have 19 teams of 4 confirmed for our 2nd 'Red Trouser' GOLF DAY on September 14 at Luffenham Heath and a few extra guests coming for Dinner and look forward to another enjoyable and successful day in aid of MLMT and the Motor Neurone Disease Assocation.
We have decided to hold our DINNER in Feb/March 2017 - more details will follow soon
Tricia will be visiting our MLMT- supported SEND A COW PROJECT IN ETHIOPIA again in October - report and pictures in our next newsletter.
Thank you for your interest and support enabling us to continue 'to give young people in Africa and the UK a better chance in life through learning, education and sport.'
