Sue Bannister writes: We have heard from The Mulberry Bush, the charity which we supported on 1 December when Stephen Gomersall spoke about the time he spent at COP26 in Glasgow and what climate change might mean for us all in the future. Our event took place during the week when annually The Big Give offers match funding to charities. We are delighted to say that with match funding we raised £4750 and we would like to thank everyone who was involved, not least Stephen. The event was sold out and we would like to thank all those of you who attended, donated, volunteered, or spread the word. Gift Aid has yet to be added to the total, so the final to sum should be around £5000.
The Mulberry Bush School, at Standlake near Witney, is a residential school for traumatised children aged from 5 to 12. Apart from the school itself they have an excellent outreach programme.
We are already planning a similar event in November or December 2022.
