Message from Lois Brown

Our ‘Wee Art Show’ was an amazing success on 24th,25th,26th April, raising over £32,000 for Juvenile Diabetes research! What a success! Our sponsors, artists & supporters made all this possible. We are so grateful to all the RLCGA girls who painted for us & to all the girls who came to buy the lovely art. Our web site is staying open for some time as we are still receiving donations & we will have photos of the event soon!
