I've been to RTU twice and it is incredible how much they do from helping children and families with schooling and support to providing homes, water, healthcare and self-help groups for the poorest communities.

The self-help groups in rural villages enable women to save as a group so that they can then take out loans to build a future for themselves and their families. During our visits to RTU we met women who were learning how to make bags from recycled materials and another group who had created a mobile cleaning/ironing business to support themselves.

This fundraiser will be another tombola because I love these so much. 😍
Helen and Satty who became the Tombola Dream Team back in 2019 are helping once again, total stars! ⭐️

This event will be at The Ale House, Broad Street, Reading RG1 2BH on 30 July, from 11.00-4.30 It's close to the Oracle and cashpoints! There is a Facebook event here: https://fb.me/e/3q9SCyZ84

There may be another Tombola or Draw later in the year also.

Hope to see you soon and thank you!

The Tombola on Saturday was fairly quiet but we still managed to raise £226.60! Loads of thanks to Helen & Satty (TDT) who helped on the day and also brought allotment veg & seeds (Helen) and gave a % of tie-dyed clothing takings (Satty). It was a brilliant day and thanks to all who came to support us! xx
