THANK YOU: The East Hoathly and Halland Village of Sanctuary would like to thank everyone that attended the recent Soup for Syria event. The group had hoped to the cover the costs; instead an amazing £1,000 was raised to help displaced people of Syria. The committee have identified three organisations to which these funds will be applied. Hand in Hand provides humanitarian aid on the ground. To contribute to the purchase and equipping of an ambulance being sent to Syria. Sponsoring an SOS Children’s Village, caring for and educating orphaned children. The committee would like to send a heartfelt thank you to all those that donated. Please make a note in your diaries for the next event which will be held in the village hall between 3pm and 5pm on Saturday April 30.
