      RSFLA has promoted links and exchanges between the two towns and supported
projects in SFL for the last 20 years. It is a registered charity funded mainly by standing-           
orders from the people of Reading. Since we set it up in 2012, the David Grimes Trust has               
supported environmental projects in San Francisco Libre. 100% of all donations we receive are used to benefit the people of San Francisco Libre.
