Our family gets a birthday boost .. thanks to Fiona!

 Fun-loving Fiona Lockyer's  fabulous 50th birthday party has given the Happy House family a big boost.
A happy evening celebrated with her family and friends at a glittering black tie dinner, is on target to raise £2000 for our charity plus raising valuable awareness of the work of our inspirational founder Mama Sue.
Held at the Ramada Hotel Birmingham  Sutton Coldfield where Fiona is the general manager, it was a party with Kenyan keynote, including an African hut had been specially constructed to house a cocktail bar, with all the spirits donated by Fiona's mum, with donations per drink coming to the charity.
Fiona and her twin daughters Hebe and Imogen are in the sponsor families of three of our children, Baraka, James and Jonathan, and the Happy House holds a special place in their hearts.
That is why Fiona wanted to share her big birthday with us and requested her family and friends to make donations to the charity instead of buying her gifts.
Elizabeth joined the guests as our Happy House representative and gave the guests a snapshot of our family and the way the Happy House is saving and transforming the lives of vulnerable children. 
She received a very warm reception and was delighted by the number of people who, afterwards, wanted to to know more.
We hope they may now want to join our special family themselves, just like their friend Fiona!
Fiona's evening was lots of fun with games, dancing, a fantastic dj and band and brilliant service from her efficient and friendly staff,
Thank you, again, to Fiona your thoughtfulness and generosity and thank you to all those who made a donation on her behalf.
Our family at the Happy House hope it won't be too long before you go back to visit them.
