THE LEPROSY MISSION

THE LEPROSY MISSION 



Since receiving stamps from the after-Christmas post I have been given 5 stamp albums and a collection of First Day Issues. I have sent them all to TLM requesting that whatever money is raised at stamp fairs is directed specifically to the Purulia Clinic project in West Bengal. The albums are well presented and contain colourful examples from South Africa, New Zealand, Japan, Vietnam, Europe, and UK commemorative issues. To my unqualified eye the albums suggest that significant money might be raised if they can be placed in the right environment. An amount raised from the annual house collection boxes was sent off in March and has also been directed to the Purulia project. A receipt for this can be seen on the table at the church main door. Many thanks for all the stamp submissions. My hope is that our parish is helping to provide comfort and/or medical assistance in an area of great need.
