- The trustees of Grail Trust UK are pleased to announce the appointment of a new trustee, Mrs Lynda Chugg. In fact Lynda has served as a trustee before, so it is a resumption of a former position. Lynda has had a long connection with India and made many visits, and has supported many Grail Trust students. She has also produced many newsletters in the past to supporters and sponsors, and put together the Christmas newsletter. We are very pleased she has rejoined the trustee body; we are now four trustees. We look forward to the opportunities for us in 2019. I am currently trying to promote our cause among church networks in North Wales so that mission giving can have a focus on projects including ours where regular visits can reinforce the personal links on which our project depends for its best effectiveness.
- New Year Greetings to all Friends and Supporters. Following my sixth visit in November 2018 to Tamil Nadu, I sent out a report which brought in an extra £1100+ in donations-thank you very much. This will fund our work with more disadvantaged children as we are taking on another five children in May 2019 making a total of 110, and we are also incrteasing support by 100 rupees a month to make the basic food allowance 800 rupees monthly, a necessary move with rising costs in India. I also visited four projects which I commend to you- a leprosy centre, a home for the elderly destitute, and two homes for mentally damaged children and adults-and I can give you more information on them I can also send copies of my November visit report to any of your friends-text me on 07935 368094 or email me firstname.lastname@example.org
