Lothersdale Village supported Mary Wood and her fundraising efforts for Nyakabungo and Kinkiizi Diocese, Uganda, for many years before the charity was formed.
From the humble beginnings of a plant stall and jars of home made marmalade outside Mary’s house the seeds were sown that have grown so brilliantly into the MWT charity that we have today.
2015 was no exception and on the 4th July the village once again showed wonderful support at the annual Party in the Park, where we provided a cake and refreshment stall.
It was a sunny, dry day and there was a good turnout considering that just about every other village, church and school in the area were also having a summer fair that day!
The stall raised £150.00 which was divided between the MWT and Keighley Women’s Refuge.
