Overall total collected is 491,595

Congratulations to Paul Dempster, winner of the June lottery.

We’ve managed to get 39,875 pairs of pants and bras out this month thanks to NPAC (Zambia), Ian Woods (Ghana) and Freedom from Fistula (Sierra Leone).  This means that half way through the year we have already beaten the amount we managed to distribute in 2016!  Thanks to everyone who played a part in making this happen – the people who donated, the people that take care of the logistics in making sure your donations get to the people in Africa safely, and of course all the hard working Smalls volunteers.

However, we now have an urgent need for NEW pants for ladies (size 8-16) and boys (ages 3-15). If you are able to pop a pack of pants in the post to us (please remember to include a note with your name so we can thank you on our website) or if you prefer to shop online we have an Amazon wish list.

Here’s a link to our latest thank you post and we are still opening parcels every week so if you don’t see your name please look for it on the next monthly thank you post.

We really are indebted to each and every person who makes an underwear or financial contribution to support the work of Smalls for All.  Without your generosity and kindness we wouldn’t be able to carry on.  As you will appreciate we work very hard to use our limited resources wisely and keep our costs to a minimum.  Therefore, we use our monthly thank you posts on the website and social media to thank all our wonderful donors rather than send letters or emails.  However, if you would like us to acknowledge your donation by letter or email please just let us know when you send in your donation.

And finally, thanks for the monetary donations to A F & H B Rheed, A M Purcell, Alison Samuel, Amanda Harrison, Anne Marie Printy, Bonnie Towe, Catherine Tuppen, Chris & Bryany, Deirdre Key, Elinor Richardson, Emily Compston, Female staff at Voice Technologies Ltd, Fiona Etheridge, Gwen Welford, Hannah Brennen, Heather Price, Jane & Kitty, Janet Sharpe, Jenny Batcheler, Joanna Rudd, Juliet King-Smith, Katherine T, Katy Hallatt, Linda Bell, Lisa J Tidman, Liz Smith, Louise Menzies, Louise Tinniswood, Madelyn Meredith, Mandy Weir, Mary Williams, Michelle Okpocha, Moira Baird, Mrs C M Marshall,, Mrs I M Fisher, Nancy Thompson, Natalie Balfour, Nicola Endersly, P L & J M Gaskell, Pamela Watt, Pauline Finch, Philippa Kelly, Polly Coburn, Sarah Tippetts, Sheila Jeffries, Sian Yarwood-Smith, Stephanie Bradley, Sue McCarthy, Susan Fisher, Sylvia Ware, The IFF Team, Tracy Angove, Victoria Stirk and to the people that sent money but didn’t give their names.
