To: The Revd Canon Simon Butler
I am writing to thank you very much indeed for the cheque for £1,500 to our work in Mali. I believe Angela Toyne gave some information about the work of our charity. We are so grateful for this wonderfully generous support. I think the money is to be allocated to rebuilding a well. However, as it is currently the rainy season, we will allocate the funds in the short-term to planting work, and when the money is repaid from this, it will be just the right time of year for well-building.
Thank you so much for giving us such key support, which will make a huge difference to many people. It will enable women to plant crops, help people to conserve their topsoil and prevent dune encroachment, and the well will transform the life of a village.
Please pass on our very grateful thanks to all the Congregation of St Mary’s Church Battersea for their very kind and generous help.
