The Homemakers (Keynsham Baptist Church) with the cheques for For-ethiopia  

Keynsham Baptist Church - Homemakers


At the AGM of the Homemakers on Wednesday 17th February 2010, we were presented with cheques totalling £4,500 towards future projects.

Throughout 2009 members of the Homemakers had been holding various events including a BBQ and Ladies Pamper Evening to raise money towards their nominated charities. From this For-ethiopia were presented a cheque for £1,500 by treasurer Hilary Hallett.

An additional surprise was that Margaret Barnes had approached the Bristol regional office of NatWest Bank to apply for a grant from the M. Millyard Trust. Margaret is an ex-NatWest employee and following her application received a cheque from NatWest for £3,000!

The Trustees of For-ethiopia would like to thank everyone in Homemakers for all their efforts throughout the year that have enabled them to raise such a fantastic amount. We would also like to thank Margaret Barnes and NatWest bank.

We look forward to reporting back on how these funds will be spent and the benefits that they have made to the people in the Addis Alem region of Ethiopia.
