Burnley brights

Terry Burns, Auntie Rose and kids

Our kids look so bright in their new Burnley shirts, given to our family by the town’s football club.
Our girls and boys are mad about football and so now the East Lancashire Club has its own junior supporters' club in East Africa.
Burnley fan Terry Burns was given it the kits and dozens of them arrived courtesy of aerospace company Aircell, which has a branch in Burnley.
Uncle Billy, David, Katana and Steve
Darren Richardson, a trustee of Terry’s charity Furniture for Education Worldwide, who is now Aircell’s director of operations in China, very kindly made the arrangements.
Janet, Margaret and Shakila
Our football-mad kids were thrilled to pose for pictures with Terry on the Happy House steps and instead of saying cheese Auntie Libby got them chanting “Burnley!” with coaching from Terry who has lived there al his life.
Thank you to Burnley Football Club and to Darren and Aircell, and again to Terry, for  making these lovely smiles possible. 
Bus Appeal
As you may know we have launched our Happy House Bigger Bus Appeal to raise money to buy a bigger bus so we can transport our kids, as a family, safely and more cost-effectively to medical and dental appointments, outside activities including free weekly football coaching at a football academy for disadvantaged kids in Malindi, on school trips and other excursions which are so much a part of growing up.
If you would like to support our appeal you can donate by clicking on this link .
