Coffee and cake

March 6th, 2012 (No Comments)

Don’t forget to pop in on Thursday for coffee and cake or tea and cake or desserts either in the morning, the afternoon or the evening!  For a donation for the work in Peru, let’s celebrate International Women’s Day and make a difference to our sisters the other side of the world!  It would be […]

Funds for us!

March 1st, 2012 (No Comments)

I have just received our first cheque from easyfundraising!  I am happy to announce that it was for £31.52.  The great thing is that this money came simply from a couple of us going through easyfundraising to do our online shopping.  Whenever you buy anything from Amazon, Tesco and many other retailers, if you just […]

Clothes for a toddler

February 21st, 2012 (No Comments)

Because of the floods reported in the last post, many people have lost everything.  Miriam is bringing her little niece back to Lima for a while as there is no food or anything where she lives.  I would like to send some clothes to her so if anyone has any for a 2 year old […]

Disaster – floods

February 19th, 2012 (No Comments)

Heavy rain near the border with Brazil has caused a lot of damage to the area and many people living there are suffering, having lost everything.  Miriam’s brother is one of these.  (He has lost his home and his business).  Please pray for those affected.  It is hard for us to imagine what devastation this […]

Women around the world celebrate their own special day on the 8th March.  We are taking this opportunity to do some fundraising for the women we support in Peru.  If you are local it would be great to see you at Liz’s house either in the morning for coffee and cake or in the afternoon […]

New curtains

December 21st, 2011 (No Comments)

In the prison cells there are shower curtains around the ‘toilets’ – some of these have become mouldy and were causing health problems for the ladies. We are pleased to report that recently we received a gift to meet any need we had, and so we were able to buy some new, better quality ones. […]

Pills and potions

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we have been able to meet a couple of urgent medical needs this month. It is easy to take our health for granted, particularly those of us who live in the UK. We don’t realise often how such a minor thing as a headache can be a great […]

Alternative gifts

Why not consider an alternative gift this Christmas, instead of the usual socks and aftershave? There are several to choose from on the Grassroots alternative gifts page – take a look at our website or the Grassroots one and you will see for yourself! We hope this will be a great opportunity for more people […]

Great news

A huge thank you to everyone who supported the Peru evening and charity auction at the week-end. Although there were not many there, there was a great atmosphere on the night and a good time was had by all. That amazing bunch of people managed to raise over £800 for HSF, so that is really […]

Work work work

Several of the ladies who are no longer in prison are working in the market at the moment, selling puddings. This is seasonal work and no doubt with the weather getting better it is good to be out there working, even if they are very long hours! This brings hope as they move towards Christmas, […]
