Appropriate memorial to Mike
12:00pm Friday 18th October 2013 in Letters
THOSE who attended the funeral of local sportsman Mike Ashton on Wednesday, October 9, were invited by Mike to make a donation to the Malarchi Pooncholai Trust, a Barry-based charity that runs a children’s home in the south Indian state of Tamil Nadu.
Mike was a much-respected trustee of this charity.
I am pleased to say that the collection realised the sum of £293.01. This sum will maintain one of the eighty children in the home in food, clothing, education, medical care and overheads for two years and five months.
This outcome will be a most appropriate memorial to Mike. The Malarchi Pooncholai Trust was a cause very close to his heart.
On behalf of all the trustees, I would like to thank everybody who contributed.
