A lot going on

Lots of love and good wishes from the Happy House to our friends at Auckley School, near Doncaster, Yorkshire, where they are holding a special celebration with proceeds to our family.

While learning all about Africa last term they put the spotlight on our Happy House. Year 1 and 2 also made jewellery and Modrock animals which sold like hot cakes and in years 3 and 4 children made cookery books and cooked up some of the recipes to sell.

Years 5 and 6 made documentaries about their research.

The culmination is their celebration event today when parents and friends have been invited along.

Our good friend Lesley Pidcock, who sponsors Janet and Natasha and who does so much to help us,  lives nearby and has taken time off to go along to set up an information stand.

So with a special smile from your little Natasha, showing her first tooth, everyone at the Happy House wishes you Lesley and everyone at Auckley a really fun day!

Meanwhile, on the Lancashire side of the Pennines, Elizabeth Gomm will be speaking to a a local organisation in Great Eccleston about Sue inspirational work and life at the Happy House.

If you represent a school or local group interested in having a talk about our work please email Elizabeth at elizabethgomm@childrenofwatamu/net
