Just a short announcement on my part to say that the money we raised for the Christian Blind Mission over the last few weeks was presented to Moya on Friday night 27th October during the interval of her concert. The final amount raised was a fantastic 811 Euros which Moya said, means a great deal to her, and to the many people this will help.
If you think that one cataract operation in the developing world costs only 20 euros, imagine what can be done with the money you all raised!

Thank you all very very much

They`re just great. Thanks G, and CONGRATULATIONS to all of you who donated the money!!! :)


/edit/
OK, finally I can feel a part of it. I felt really bad about not being able to donate the money earlier. But finally all difficulties overcome. :)

Nice!! And well done!!! Great pictures!

811 Euros! That's probably about £500, so quite a lot of money!
