Sponsorship Increase

The full increase has now been fixed to £20 this year and for this increase we have now added a huge number of extras which we believe is far more than other organisations can provide. As well as including the old items, such as uniform, bag, books, pens, pencils, fees, dental items, footwear, umbrella, etc. We will now also be including a health kit

First Batch of Letters

Our first batch of letters are going out after being translated. They took 3 months to get here and 1 month to translate them all.
