Santa's workshop

Santa's little helpers have been hard at work in his Happy House workshop  getting things ready for his special delivery on Christmas Day.
Working in a secret location, away from any prying eyes, they have sorted out a set of new clothes for very child - the one thing they all requested.
They will also have a couple of gifts each. We can't shower them with the number of gifts a child in the UK expects, it's not the way here and our children will be thrilled with everything they receive.
For those who have joined our family in this year it will be their first experinece of Christmas and in vast contrast the the terrible conditions of fear, hunger or neglect they were living in at the same time last year.
What a magical time it will be for them.
Lynn McCluskey was designated fairy-in-charge and what magic she has performed. In the space of two days she has sorted through dozens and dozens of items of clothing and gifts, so generously donated by YOU, with the help of Auntie Violet.
Other good friends of the Happy House Brenda Groves and her granddaughter, Lucy, also chipped also spent a few hours helping on Monday/
Lynn had everything so well organised, the only drawback was that we are 13 giftbags short but hope,with your help, that by Christmas we will have one for each child - we have the contents we are just short of the giftbags!
If anyone would like to send a few it would be such a help. Our address is Sue Hayward's Happy House, PO Box 796, Watamu, Kenya, East Africa.
