The Sylvia Wright Trust

We support the trust in Tamil Nadu, India to run a school for the deaf and a hospital

Story

Hello lovely people,

In September Lucy and Lisa will be attempting to run their first half marathon - all for a fantastic cause! 

Lucy was fortunate enough to spend 6 weeks out in India with the amazing Sylvia Wright who has dedicated her life to helping the the local population of Tiruvunnamalai, Tamil Nadu. Sylvia has established a 220 bed hospital, a boarding school for deaf children, two day centres for severely disabled children, a teaching college and a nursing college. 

During Lucy's time out there, she experienced first hand the fantastic work Sylvia and her team have done and are continuing to do. Providing deaf children, who would otherwise not receive an education, with a place to learn in a happy and vibrant environment. Offering good quality healthcare to a population who have challenging health needs and would not be able to afford treatment. Providing training to the local community to provide jobs and fulfil potential but also to continue Sylvia's legacy and work ethic. 

This lady is a true inspiration (she is not a fan of curry and dislikes the heat!) and has been able to continue her work with the help of her fund-raising friends back in Yorkshire. We would love to raise some pennies to help support the team in continuing their fantastic work. A pound goes a long way in India, so please dig deep! 

Thank you very much,

Lucy and Lisa xxx
