A new cargo from the UK has arrived

 

We send a container full of donated goods to Peru each year which enables us both to give direct help in the refuge and in the community and to save us money in Peru. Our recent delivery included materials for our kitchen, educational, art and stationery materials, books for our library, educational and recreational toys for our play room, toiletries, school furniture, clothes, shoes, and a wheel chair, together with many other items. See http://projectperu.org.uk/our-work/distribution-of-goods-sent-to-peru-from-the-uk.htm to see more about this part of our work.

We have previously used Liverpoool, Felixstowe and Tilbury docks but this was the first of our cargoes to use the new London Gateway docks. http://www.londongateway.com/  

Amongst the cargo this time was a special collection of donated and decorated boxes of goods including books, toys, games, stationery and much more given by some of the pupils at Ormskirk School; the school has also been engaged in fundraising for us over the past year and a group of their students will be staying at the refuge as part of a school trip to Peru in March 2015. http://www.ormskirk.lancs.sch.uk/
