On Sunday 1st July 2018 Sr Eugene organised a Burmese lunch for the parishioners of Haddenham and Long Crendon and members of the local Burmese community to raise funds for the Sisters and Students of the Order of St Paul in Myanmar/Burma.

The sun shone all day from a cloudless sky and a large group of people were able to enjoy a wonderful selection of Burmese foods while seated at tables under the shelter of a giant Cedar tree which was planted many years ago by Fr Boswell in memory of John Butler who helped him to build the church at Long Crendon.

The scene was enlivened by many members from the Burmese community who were wearing colourful traditional costumes.

After lunch the raffle was drawn which apart from alcoholic beverages contained many prizes of Burmese origin which had been donated by the Burmese community.
