Sunday, 3rd July - De La Salle Brothers Rwanda Project

St Cassian's Centre, Wallington's Road, Kintbury. Cream tea afternoon from 2pm until 5pm and open day. The day will include tours of the house and a film presentation of the work done at the centre. All proceeds will go to the De La Salle Brothers Rwanda School Project.

A cream tea? I'd love to!
Having just spent a couple of hours thrashing up and down the local swimming pool, I undid all of the good I'd done by eating a cream tea or two for a good cause! I went to St Cassian's in Kintbury for their open day where there was a tour of their house and grounds, in return for a donation in aid of the De La Salle Brothers Rwanda Project. I also bought a raffle ticket without realising it, such was the forcefulness of the woman on the door, before getting a tour of the facilities from a lovely young volunteer called Enda. The brothers offer young people the chance to come here for a few days of peace and prayer in a Christian retreat centre which provides a spiritual experience.

The Brothers as a whole have been supporting world projects since 1985 all over the world, but proceeds from today were aimed at Rwanda
