Land purchased completed
Great news to share and that is that we have managed to complete the purchase of the entire plot that we wanted for the St George Foundation centre. A huge thank you for the all the donations and I do have to say a very special thank you to some who were super generous. The stability gained really does change the prospects for St George in the future and owning a site with a secure water supply is so valuable and we can get on with our own plans as we choose. See this video for some drone footage of the site:
One of the things we have chosen to do is move the local office from the city onto the same site as the home and have everything in one place so the work has started to convert the guest block/store room into an office with new guest accommodation being built above it (hint there – we really would like supporters to visit when completed). The whole conversion is relatively inexpensive at around £5000 so we will have to raise that but hopefully if people can visit and stay on site it will repay itself quite quickly.
Purchase costs raised
One supporter who has made it out there is showing commitment! Back in the UK and helping raise funds - our friend Abid Gangat is doing a 100 mile bike ride very soon to raise funds. Please do visit his link to see a bit more and encourage him? https://www.justgiving.com/
Good luck Abid!
