Young savers!

 We know how much our sponsor families care about their children and how it  can be difficult to
know what to send as a gift. Our children do have all they  need when it comes to clothes and toys. We are really grateful for your generosity, and know how you love your kids, but something small is
fine,  specially as postage costs so much money. 
 I have been talking to the bank and we are now in the process of setting up  bank accounts for each of our children so they will all have their own  little nest egg for the future, so instead of sending gifts you  could make a contribution to give them a financial cushion!
 Donations can  be made through Just Giving on the website, if you use this method please email  me to tell me how much you have donated and to which child. Alternatively  cheques can be sent to Elizabeth Gomm, 6, Burwood Drive, Blackpool, FY3 8NS. 
 Shelagh and Clive, who are in Francis' sponsor family, sent him a Blackpool  FC pen and £10, he was
thrilled when Billy explained that it would be opening  his savings account. He thinks he's rich! All the children love receiving your cards, letters and photographs and get such a sense of belonging and
friendship  from them. Thank you all for caring.
