Dear friends of CTR
 
This is the 17th year of CTR’s operation. I am reminded of the sayings ‘The days are long, but the years are short’. We continue to maintain our commitment to helping less fortunate Anglo-Indians in India, We provide senior pensions in Kolkata, Chennai, Bengalaru, KGF, Vijayawada and Vizagapatam and we provide educational assistance to boarders in Loreto Entally and Chennai and day student assistance in Kolkata, Chennai, Hyderabad and Vijayawada. In 2014 CTR send Rs 35 lakhs (about $ 60,000) to India
 
CTR Canada continue to do well and their 2015 dance was sold out. USA is chugging along with diehard supporters. We have had difficulty in raising money in Australia and the UK, but with the International in 2016 in Sydney we hope to make this up. Here are the details - it seems too good to miss. Pl note the date and please attend
