International Projects

Action Aid

The club sponsors a school girl in Afghanistan through the charity Action Aid.

International President’s Appeal

Each year a donation is made to the International President’s Appeal – usually from the proceeds of  our International Night celebrations. The 2017-2019 appeal is ‘Women, Water and Leadership’

Mary’s Meals

The club has supported this charity for a number of years and has undertaken their Backpack Project three times in recent years.


The New Hope Rural Trust in Orissa, India started as a leprosy colony and, initially, we sent them clean, used tights which they used to secure dressings. As leprosy is now less prevalent, the Trust gives help to anyone who needs it and we have supported them by funding a hospice for HIV/Aids children and cataract operations for the elderly.We have sponsored a schoolgirl and continue to send used greetings cards which are upcycled.


Our Paddington mascot collects 5p pieces and funds raised are given to the SIGBI long-term project – currently the Meru Garden Project

In 2016 we raised more than £9000 for Act4Africa’s Health Empowerment and Livelihoods (HEAL) Malawi project.

We are now supporting Act4Africa’s HEAL Uganda project and have sponsored a goat for Kathy’s Centre.
