Letters of thanks from grant recipients

“This kind of holiday is a once in a lifetime experience for the most needy of our young people. The holiday was a great success and the young people really enjoyed the experience of a boat trip. It was a very comfortable boat, well equipped for the young people who cooked, crewed and cleaned. Many thanks ”
