What we’ve been up to…

04Jul '22

We are delighted with the response to last week's Wirral Walk and the money raised for the charity we support in Malawi. We are especially grateful to Moreton based company, @Typhoo_tea who made a very generous donation. Typhoo source a lot of their tea from suppliers in Malawi. https://t.co/dcZ6cABlrP
