OCT receive gift of three lap tops.

On Saturday 6th January the trust were invited to a presentation at Greatstone, where we were presented with a fantastic gift of 3 lap tops. The William Fagg Lodge no 9986 (Royal Antidilvian Order of Buffaloes, Grand Lodge of England) kindly donated this amazing gift to the trust.   The laptops will provide the facility for many families to use the internet whilst in the comfort of their holiday home & enable the children to  carry on with school coursework when needed or provide the facility just to research the area to explore. Our sincere thankyou to everyone from the Lodge concerned and to Bro.Ron Oiller for organising this.

The Oliver Curd Trust relies solely on the generosity of people like you for its funding, and we really are very grateful for all your support. Whatever you can give, no matter how large or small, it will go a long way to making a difference providing families a short holiday during very difficult and trying times.  If you would like to make a donation please visit the how to donate page
