Another successful event for the Typhoon "Haiyan/Yolanda" survivors was held last 18th of January 2014. The "FUNDRAISING FETE IN AID OF PHILIPPINES RELIEF" headed by Dr SANJANA SRIDHARAN and Mr CHARLIE FERNANDEZ was given the full support by the whole staff and friends from the CALUDON CENTRE,COVENTRY & WARWICKSHIRE PARTNERSHIP NHS TRUST. The day was celebrated with local performers both from the centre staff and their families as well as volunteer groups from Coventry. There were Tea-cake sales, Bric-A-Brac, Raffles and games to keep everyone entertained as well as a variety of Filipino, Indian and other delicacies were available to taste! It was a great day for charity indeed! This event generated the amount of £1,007.27 and was handed over to HANDOG NATIN CHARITY to be used for the ongoing shelter project and future rehabilitation missions in Leyte,Philippines.

We would like to express our deepest appreciation for this very kind gesture from all the Staff of Caludon Centre, and for taking time out and reaching out to the typhoon survivors in the Philippines. Special thanks goes to Dr Sanjana Sridharan for making it all possible. Thank you very much to all those who came and took part on this fundraising event and made it a big success!

Coventry, UK -November 24,2013 - A very meaningful evening of sharing, giving and caring, all for a common cause to reach out to our brothers and sisters in the Philippines. Indeed a true Filipino spirit of 'Bayanihan' at its finest.A historic event of people from different races coming together as one, and to be one in the true essence of camaraderie.
Taos puso kaming nagpapasalamat sa lahat ng dumalo at nakiisa sa gabing ito.
We wholeheartedly thank each and everyone who took time and showed support and generosity on this very momentous event. The exemplary effort and hard work of the organisers headed by Vida Banares-Kidger and Arlene Calica, along with Arlette Hoderial, Bong dela Cerna, Catherine,Arcelyn,Noe,Jude,Ethel, Marilyn Conneely (Marilyn's Sari-sari Store) and the rest of the team made it all an evening to remember.
The success of this event would not have been possible if not for the help and selfless generosity of Mrs Murphy and the staff of St Gregory's Primary School Coventry.
The evening was filled with an abundance of filipino and equally sumptuous variety of food contributed and shared by everyone. We were also very lucky having been audience to highly gifted individuals who performed and shared their superb talents through the night , all for charity, headed by Ross Darby and his bands along with our very own Jeannete, Hardy & Albert.
The generous sponsors who gave away fantastic prizes at the raffles added to this great evening. This very successful event has generated a sub-total of £4,349.00 which has been handed over to Handog Natin Charity to help conduct and facilitate the relief operations and medical missions for the people of Tacloban,Leyte and Northern Ilo-ilo.
Again, to all of you who helped made this evening a truly magnificent and meaningful one, may you all be blessed and the care and generosity you have shown in this time of need, comes back to you in ten folds!
