The Grand Prior The Much Honoured Baron of Fetternear MBE GCLJ GCMLJ JP 
presents a cheque for £10,000 to 
Mr Pradeep Amirthanayagam, Vice-Chairman of the Board of Directors of SUROL; 

This week Mr Pradeep Amirthanayagam visited St Catherine's.  He is the Vice-Chairman of the Board of Directors of SUROL, the Sri Lankan organisation the Order of St Lazarus here in Great Britain work to support. By good fortune he was able to come across the Pennines from deepest Yorkshire where he has been visiting family members and spend some time with members of the Order. We were very happy to have the opportunity of presenting him with a cheque for SUROL for £10,000, some of which has been raised by parishioners here at St Catherine's.

Since the end of the strife in the north of Sri Lanka, in the Tamil area that was formerly inaccessible to them, SUROL has discovered a whole new clientèle of those suffering from leprosy that they are now trying to assist.  Their outreach work has effectively doubled.
