The FIG Tree has just received a donation of almost £500 that was collected by the Korea Fair Trade Organization during a networking event held before Christmas. The donations came from concerned individuals on hearing about the flood damage in December and wanted to see The FIG Tree survive and continue its good work. We wish to express our enormous gratitude for a donation that not only provides vital funds but also demonstrates the remarkable support The FIG Tree attracts from its friends across the globe.

We had a successful workshop on Thursday the 3rd of March at the Friends Meeting House, cost £25/head.
We are planning another one soon
