Saint Edward Brotherhood’s Orthodox Aid Fund made donations totaling £14,132.82 during 2016. These funds were donated to various church, humanitarian and environmental charities (other than the King Edward Orthodox Trust, which administers our own community). The donations were made possible by the generosity of our church people, the readers of “The Shepherd” and other friends of our Brotherhood. In 2015, the fund gave away £12,509.13, so this is an increase of just over £1,600 on that figure. This is the more remarkable in that during the year we have also been raising funds for the King Edward Orthodox Trust Co. Ltd towards the Mortuary Restoration. We owe a debt of gratitude to all who have helped us achieve this, and pray that our Saviour will grant you things heavenly for things earthly and reward you richly in this life and in the next.
