Can I say a quick thank you to Friends of Nothe Gardens members, St Nicholas Church, Broadwey and our own personal friends and family who turn out to support our fund raising efforts on behalf of Childrens Charity Fund (Russia).

Our daughter Judy Parson (nee Genge) who has just returned to Uffa, Bashkortistan, for the third time, to carry on her support of Orphanage 10'.

Our Christmas drop-in at the bungalow raised over £250 and this boosts the total cash raised this time to more than £1,500.

So, merry Christmas!

Roger Genge, The Nothe, Weymouth.
