No more Fairs!

All the fairs over and done with now! It is so enjoyable to to be out there talking to people about what we do and stand for. People are genuinely interested and also very surprised that Leprosy still exists! Our little team, Mike, Mildred and myself attract all sorts of people to have a chat with. Although I do think that having a few chairs scattered around the tent also helps! Who doesn't want to have a sit down when you've been walking round the stalls all day! Best sellers of the ...

NLT Sponsored Walk – Update

The NLT 2019 Sponsored Walk on Saturday 14th September will start at 10:30am from the Langley Park car park, in Billet Lane, Ivor, SL0 0LS. This is a smaller car park, so it should not be too hard to find each other at the start and there are some nice tea rooms and toilets to make things comfortable. Bring some loose change in case there is a small charge for the car park - not sure about the cost, if any. The first part of the walk will loop around Langley park, taking in the Arboritum. The...

Summer Fair

Our last fair of the season - at St Margaret's on 6th July - is fast approaching. Please do pray for good weather and no wind. Wind makes putting up the tent very difficult. We have lots of great things to sell. Our newest item is our felt ball bracelet which is proving to be poplular amongst young and old. We hope it will be a great day!

The Vitality London 10000 Run was a Blast – again!

At the 2019 Vitality London 10000 run we had four runners who were able to run, and three of those were running in the first and fastest wave, the fourth running in the second wave. Steve, Eric, James and Matthew were all looking forward to the run as they are keen runners and it helps to have the buzz of a big event like this to help you along. There were 23,500 runners so the crowds were enormous, but the event was well organised and the runners flowed steadily into the various star...
