Mum's the word

There was an unscheduled engagement for Mama Sue, Papa Dave and Elizabeth last night.
Steve Cushing had been due to give a talk on his his trek across the Arctic to members of St Paul's Mothers' Union, Warton, near Preston, but was forced to stand down because he was unwell.
So he asked Sue and Elizabeth if they could take his place, and Papa came along as driver and Man Friday!.
Hearing the Happy House story brought a real ray of sunshine into the lives of the lovely Warton ladies who were inspired and touched by the way the Happy House is giving vulnerable kids a real chance in life.
Papa, the only man in the house, appreciated the welcome he received and reckoned he'd turned into his late mum ... who had always loved attending her local mothers' union!
Thank you to the Warton ladies for making us so welcome and for giving so generously to to our family - raising £119.
Thank you also to Steve for asking us to step in and we hope you get better very soon.
