Intendant General starts new charity appeal

SAVI - Surrey Association for Visual ImpairmentThe Divisional Intendant General has decided to launch a new charity appeal. He would like to encourage all Conclaves to support him in achieving a worthwhile sum over the next two years in support of SAVI - Surrey Association for Visual Impairment.

This charity is committed to working with blind and partially sighted people in Surrey and provide services so they may lead fuller, more independent lives. The charity was originally founded in 1922 to support people blinded in the First World War.

The charity provides a wide range of services:

Providing equipment and professional advice
Community support

The current appeal towards the Surrey Mark 2014 Festival has now reached its conclusion - accumulating a sum in excess of £5,000 - this will be presented at next year's Provincial Mark meeting.

It is hoped that this new appeal will be well supported by all Conclaves.

All donations should be sent to me and made payable to: The Grand Charity (The Division currently holds an account with them). A receipt will be issued and I will give the Conclaves regular updates on the progress of the appeal. For further information about the charity and its work please see their website at
