Dear Member & Friend,

I last wrote to you in March of this year. Since then we have had some sad news. Anita Reinboth, our former Secretary and a keen supporter, lost her long battle against cancer in the summer. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her mother, Dr Geeta Reinboth(our last President), her husband Tim Jones and their daughter Larissa.

Last year, for the first time, we were able to send £10,000 to the hospital for the needy patients of the area surrounding the hospital. This year we hope to send at least 10,000 again - if possible, more - to the Sevashram. Our efforts raise only a small amount of the expenditure that the hospital incurs on a daily basis. So far, we have sent only £2125 to the hospital this year. We need to do more to reach our target for this year.

On 22nd April, Bratin Roy, one of our members, was due to run the London Marathon again this year to raise funds for us. Although he had to pull out of the race due to injury, he still managed to collect £725 for us. He plans to run again next year for us, and we hope you will show your support by sponsoring him on virginmoneygiving.com/bratinroy.

We have had only one fundraising event so far this year on 12th May at Maidenhead, when despite a small gathering, we raised £1000.

Our next fundraising effort is planned for Saturday November 24th at Drayton Manor High School, Hanwell. A leaflet with details is enclosed with this.

Please come, bring your friends and show your support for this very worthy cause.

Regards,

Roma Hoon

Roma Hoon O.B.E., Secretary                                                   Dr. Satya Chatterjee, President

Benu Roy, Treasurer
