Charity Argentine Tango - 7th July 2018

St Mary's Cathedral Our Charity Tango evening to raise money for the village primary school in Ban Hua Dong, in the Yasothon province of NE Thailand was very successful raising £987.

The school is in a very poor rice-farming area which is experiencing an exodus of its young adults to Bangkok who often leave behind their children with grandparents. The school is struggling to pay for books, sports equipment and needs another teacher.

We thank all those who attended, volunteered and donated to our event for supporting us in raising money to support this worthy cause - all of the money is going to the school.

This school is next to rice fields and students grow vegetables for their school dinners.

One of the teachers was about to retire at the end of the
year leaving only 2 teachers in total.
