Hungary – Update 2

Happy New Year…

Only 7 months until we go on our Summer Expedition.
Our Target for fundraising was a min of £9,600,
We all signed up to this and remember if we do not raise it, some of the days are going to be quite empty.
With this in mind full steam ahead.

Xmas bag packing delivered over £3200 well done,

Everyone will need to do one of the next two dates for Bag Packing, which we hope to be the 10th and 31st March. These dates are still to be confirmed. Please watch out for a Facebook post early February for confirmation.

Ask friend, neighbors and family to donate whatever they have if a garage needs emptying be there.
We have limited space to store the stuff you collect, let me know and it can be stored safely till June if this helps, but we ask you to hold onto your loot if you can due to the limited space.
