Oxfordshire, UK - Salvo Fair has supported the charity, Médecins Sans Frontières or Doctors Without Borders for a number of years and this year the total raised, so far, is £160.50. The money raised on the field with MSF boxes on the Salvo table, at the Reusefully stand and on the bar, run by a local public house The Golden Ball, was £110.50. Further funds were also made from the sale of a few copies of the book Reclaiming Style by Adam Hills and Maria Speake, kindly donated by Retrouvius.
The fee charged for many of the new user registrations on SalvoWEB, our architectural salvage online marketplace, is also donated to MSF. Salvo has donated nearly a £1,000 in the last year.
So for those of you that have not heard of MSF below is a short description of what they achieve worldwide:
They are a charity both owned and run by their staff, past and present and collectively make sure that MSF stays true to its mission and principles. MSF is most well known for its humanitarian medical work worldwide. They are often the first on the scene at natural disasters such as earthquakes and continue to provide medical care in the most dangerous war zones. They are perhaps less well known for the important research work they also do based on their invaluable field experience with vulnerable populations.
Supporting MSF will help them to continue to deliver medical care where the need is greatest, anywhere in the world. Add a donation to MSF via the Salvo Fair fundraising page at the Virgin money giving at the link below.
