Friends of Assin Foso Parish and School
The group was established in Autumn 2016 following a visit by Father Preston to Assin Foso.
St. Charles and St. Thomas More parish has had a long association with this parish in Ghana through Father Emmanuel Quagraine. The aim of the group is to fundraise to support both the parish and school especially with building work.
The focus in the school has been around decorating the building while work on the parish hall has included plastering, tiling, installing flooring and balconies on a mezzanine with the long term aim to be able to generate income by renting out the hall.
To date £6,900 has ben sent to Ghana which has been raised through the generous support of parishioners to fundraising events such as the Lucky Numbers monthly draw, Steve Binns talks, film nights, jewellery donations, a quiz, sponsored events and individual donations.
Photographs are on display in the Parish Hall which show the progress that is being made and there are regular updates through the newsletter.
The group very much appreciate the support we have received from everyone at St. Charles and St. Thomas More parish.
