Further Information on the 2015 10% Donations

We now have further information from some of the charities we have donated to this year.

* Unicef - £100. Hopefully not used to help pay the salary of their rather expensive Chief Executive!
* Chester Zoo - £60. Supporting their work with Red Pandas.
* LawCare - £1,000. Money to be used in support of their provision of support for bullying in the workplace and disciplinary issues.
* Y Care International - £300. The money has been used to support vulnerable young people in Guatemala.

* Time Out Group - £200. (suggested by Chafes). Money used to help fund a holiday for adults with learning disabilities.
* St Johns Seminary, Tanzania (providing the funding for 5 students to attend school) - £2,200. We are hoping to develop a strong link with this school and support 5 children aged 14-18 with the costs of their education.

Total amount donated so far in 2015 - £6,460. We have a good chunk of money still in the bank and we plan to work out expenditure of this in mid-Summer 2015. Some of the above charities have been suggested by candidates and clients. Others are linked to our trustees' own interests.
