FUNDRAISING THROUGH SONG2010-04-05

SEED is very grateful to the "Luard trio" (Caroline Luard, Valerie Wright and Julie Dance) for putting on a wonderful concert of song - from Mozart through shows to boogie woogie - in aid of The SEED Project. The concert was held in a barn in Elstead, Surrey (by kind permission of owners Richard and Hilary Grey), all lit with fairy lights, in November 2009, and attracted an audience of over a hundred. It raised a fantastic £635, and a local trust fund (Erica Leonard Trust) donated a further £500, taking the total to a phenomenal £1135!

Other funding news

SEED would like to express its thanks to St. Eustachius Church in Tavistock, Devon, which raised £140 for SEED in August. As their "mission of the month", SEED was featured in their parish magazine and in prayers, as well as benefiting from the proceeds of a weekly tea/coffee stand in the church, organized by SEED supporter Eileen Hooper.

SEED would also like to thank Brooking and Dartington Churches in Devon, who welcomed trustees Jackson and Marie Nazombe to speak at their services in August, organized a coffee morning in aid of SEED, and made donations at their harvest services. Combined, their efforts raised £532 for communities in Zimbabwe.

Lastly (but certainly not least!), SEED would like to thank The Burden Trust, Hills Rd 6th Form College (Cambridge), an anonymous donor and all the wonderful individual supporters of SEED, particularly those who give regularly by standing order who don't get a "thank you" every month. The value of your consistent support cannot be underestimated - THANK YOU!
