SIR - A group of 20 teenagers from churches in WGC are heading off to Costa Rica on July 26, 2008, to work at the Roblealto Children's Centre. While at Roblealto we will be spending a week decorating a house at the orphanage which is home to more than 80 children, and another week running play sessions for children at the day care centre.

Over the Christmas period, these 20 young people offered a bag packing service in Waitrose and Morrisons, and over those three dates, we raised £3,046!

We would like to say thank you to the people of WGC who made these contributions in order to support the fundraising for our mission trip to Costa Rica.

Sara Taylor, Youth Worker, Panshanger & Free Church Partnership.
