OUR OVERSEAS MISSION - VES PERU - LATEST
Last week I sent Sister Maeve in Peru a cheque for £4,689.42 for Our Taytaq'os. Word for word, this is her reply when I told her the money was on its way: "Very many thanks for your very generous donation. For all at Lytham, St Peter's a big thank you to all I hope to send you some photos soon Maeve". I sent the last lot of money to Maeve on 20th Jan 2019 so can I add my thanks to all of you for 'being there' for Our Grannies & Grandads we look after in PERU. Every donation, big or small, counts and, by the way, the Running Total on 30th June was £146220.51. How good is that? What a Team!
