Issue 39



“Since the first visit by our Scheme

Monitor, Andrew Agapiou, we have

established a Novograf Charity

Committee which will distribute

funds to worthwhile causes, both

locally and nationally.

“The Committee will also support

worthwhile charitable efforts being

undertaken by various Novograf
