Table Sale
Table Sale - Australia

November 2010

Sue and Adrian love Langkawi and visit often. They were clearing out their home near Perth to rent it out whilst they toured around Australia in their motor home next year and decided that all the proceeds from their table sale would be donated to us.

We were delighted with this idea - even more delighted when they told us they had raised the equivalent of RM 1200 from this enterprise! They plan to visit Langkawi for a month in March and we look forward to the opportunity of thanking them personally for this kind gesture.

We will hold these funds separately and agree with Sue and Adrian how they should be spent for the benefit of underprivileged families in Langkawi.

When Sue and Adrian visited Langkawi in March they handed over nearly RM 2800 which they wished to be donated to the Special Appeal for surgery for Aqmal.

These restaurants ran a promotion asking diners to donate RM1 per person to their bill which they matched. 

The total raised was RM 522.

Our grateful thanks to Lorenzo for coming up with the idea, the staff at both restaurants who promoted the campaign so well and to the diners who donated.

We will hold this amount in a separate fund which will be used on a one off project.  We will update the staff on how the money has been spent in the future.

Update 3 May 2011 - The funds have been spent on purchasing a sewing machine for Punniavathy. She is a single mum and is being taught to sew by two of our volunteers so that she can start to earn a living. She is very excited and grateful to Lorenzo and his staff for giving her this opportunity.

Charity Stall at Blood Donation day

7 August 2010

Langkawi Fair Shopping Mall in conjunction with ANSARA (alumni association for former students of MARA colleges) and MARA (Indigenous People’s Trust Council) Junior Science College in Langkawi organised a blood donation drive on Saturday 7 August, ahead of the fasting month of Ramadhan to aid the blood bank which receives decreased blood donations during this period.

The Charity Club took a stall at this event selling items (previously donated by the public) in order to raise funds to provide food parcels for families in need in Langkawi.

On sale were household items and many clothes, including a whole rail of Baju Kurong (local Muslim dress) which were very popular with the oncoming Hari Raya celebrations. We were also selling copies of our colourful Asian recipe book that arrived hot off the press just a few days before the event.

Payapaya, the organic vegetable growing company based in Langkawi, continued its support of The Charity Club by sharing our stall to sell a variety of vegetables and homemade pickles. They kindly donated all proceeds from the sale of the morning’s harvest as well as a percentage of the sale of their pickles. Thank you Kyri!

Thank you also to 13 year old Kelly Gray who baked and donated a Mississippi Mud Pie for sale on the stall – it was a sellout!

The event raised a total of RM1,152 from all sales and donations.
A big thank you to all of you who supported us, especially our tireless volunteers - Ben, Kym, Fauziah, Jo, Michelle, Roberta, Trish and Yvonne - who set up and ran the stall on the day.
