Thank you!

CorePro team would like to say a huge “thank you” to everyone who attended our “Getting to Know MOLDOVA” – Charity Event last Sunday.
We had a great time and we were delighted so many people made the effort to come and help us.

We should also say a massive “thanks” to everyone who donated to “MORE from CORE”.

So far we have collected £1435.25 and 6 Euro (£5.22), thanks to all the participants to “Getting to Know MOLDOVA – Charity Event”, but because most of our friends present at the Event, as well who could not make it, have wondered if they could make the donation online, we decided to use an online fundraising platform to give them a chance to donate online until 28th February.
