The Welfare Team launched this year’s BWG Christmas Appeal at the Triple Whammy Coffee Morning in September and continued collecting donations throughout the Festive Season.

Four charities were chosen to focus on for this appeal:

1. Noh Bo Academy – to provide much needed T-Shirts and Flip Flops for children there

2. Mosquito Nets – so important in those very mosquito ridden areas, these can literally save lives

3. Goody Bags – we will provide a limited amount of goody bags and decide where best to donate them. They will contain some essentials such as toothpaste, toothbrush, soap, notebook, crayons, hat, small cuddly toy, hand towel

4. Towels/Blankets and Children’s Underwear for Gift of Happiness

Here is an update on the monies raised through our member’s kindness and generosity!

Mosquito Nets 20,000 Baht (BCMF)
T shirt/flips flops 15,000 Baht (Noh Bo Academy)
15,000 Baht for underwear/blankets (Gift of Happiness)
5000 Baht was donated to ‘Santa Cause’ and 5000 Baht each to Place of Grace and Wanchai Thanksgiving Home in time for Children’s Day on 10 January (in lieu of goody bags)
