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!

++++UPDATE++++
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
