On Monday 10th November members of the Kashmir Earthquake Relief fund were delighted to receive cheques for £12,150 from Councillor Jackie Drayton. This brings the total she has raised as part of the Lord Mayor's appeal to £22,161 for the Sheffield Girls' College in Bagh. This was a welcome boost to the fund for the college which is currently under construction.

There is now enough money to complete the block currently under construction which consists of 16 class rooms, 8 toilets and a small hall. To replace what existed another block containing 20 more class rooms a library and a larger hall for assemblies, exams and gatherings will be needed.

The charity has organised a fund raising meal on the 14th December at 6.30pm at Burngreave Vestry Hall. The 3 course Kashmiri meal will cost £10 and greetings cards and other fund raising gifts will be on sale.
