Purple Community Fund

Many of you will remember Lis who visited us to talk about the work the PCF charity does in the Philippines to help poverty stricken families and communities transform their own lives with our skills training, education, health and nutrition programmes.  It has been a tough year for everyone in the Philippines, we can continue to help them raise vital funds for their projects by collecting ring pulls from drinks cans and ties - they recycle and reuse these materials to make into products to sell. 


PLEASE can you continue collecting ring-pulls over the Christmas and New Year festivities and bring in your precious load to the January 2022 meeting.


Thank you
