Letter of Thanks sent to Jersey Evening Post April 2012
From Mustard Seed Jersey Co Ordinator
On behalf of Mustard Seed Jersey and the 6 recipient charities in Oradea, Romania may I say a sincere THANK YOU to all who made our recent aid consignment possible. Fundatia Crestina Vineyard emailed me to say “Many thanks for all you sent. We have been able to bless so many people as we have distributed what we received from Jersey” The email continued asking me to thank all who had made it possible.
Firstly we thank the public for their generosity in giving funds and goods, then we thank the 4 churches All Saints, St Peters, St Marys and St Lukes for acting as our collecting places and also Holme Grown Farm Shop. Next we thank the volunteers (without whom Mustard Seed Jersey could not function) who give their time to collect, sort, pack, load, repair, drive, raise funds, pray and many other tasks. We are so grateful to our landlords Vernon Helie, Seymour Hotels, Liz Marks for storage, packing facilities and parking. We thank those businesses who have recently assisted our work by generous discount and occasional “freebies”, especially Channel Island Tyre Company, Paperclix and Emile Goaziou.
Thinking specifically of this recent aid consignment, we do thank Condor Logistics for their help moving the trailer, Sutton Commercials for checking the trailer, Condor Ferries for their generous discount, our drivers Graeme and David, BAG for giving us exemption on the toll roads in Germany, Michel Desmot in St Malo for all his help and support, Herve Godard of Sarl Godard also in St Malo for free use of a tractor unit.
To one and all may I say “multumim” which means “we thank you” in Romanian.
