The Newbrook Group were recently moved by the work being done by John McCauley in Tanzania. Over the past nine years, John has been working closely with orphanages and the elderly population to help improve their poverty-stricken lives.
Firstly the residents and staff of Newbrook and Newbrook Lodge decided to have a sponsored walk along the canal in Mullingar to raise money. It was a hot, sunny day and we all had a great time and appreciated the refreshments on our return.
We are now going to be holding lots of fundraising events over the coming months to raise as much money as possible for this cause.
And we are very excited to announce that we are going to sponsor two of our own staff members to go to Tanzania with John in June 2020! They will help improve and build onto the community’s current facilities, so the elderly population of the village can have a room and bed to sleep in and a kitchen to cook in.
We’ll keep you updated with our progress.
