More inspirational Speakers on Sunday morning (programme and Speaker details on the links below) with time to visit the Hall of Friendship to make helpful contacts. Thanks to Dave Hatcher of Shelterbox for providing items to update our boxes and many others – too numerous to mention – for all their assistance and provision of banners etc etc. Some friendly faces we will see again soon when RC Dover visit next month and some are busy organising a future raid.
