A belated happy new year to you all, lets hope its a lot better than the last
one! I don’t think we sent out a Christmas message. Seems like a lifetime ago
now but I do hope you all had a decent Crimbo - very different but hopefully
not too bad. Hopefully we’ll all be able to have a more normal Christmas this
year. I hope you are all keeping safe and healthy during this strange time.
I have just seen the December branch statement - as it was sent to my old
btopenworld.com <http://btopenworld.com/> address and I’d been waiting and
waiting for it thinking it was just late due to Covid, but chased it and got a
replacement sent out! Predictably monies last year were quite a lot lower -
£3.7k less than the previous year - but we managed to raise £5.1k. The bulk of
this (£4.1k) in our NAP funds - £2.5k being the other half of Radnor Lodge NAP
and the rest Queenie’s “birthday NAP” which is still active on Just Giving. We
lost out on collections as those were big earners the year before, hopefully
can get back to doing some towards the end of the year..??
Other than banking funds, I am not involved with NAPs etc, so don’t get updates
but I understand that “Radnor” has been born - perhaps Paul and Angela could
share some news? And if a visit is arranged for the pup, do keep us posted and
perhaps some of us can go along with our working dogs?
All the best
