Post a pullover, please!

School uniform gives a sense of pride
It's mid-school holidays, and everywhere we look there are adverts for school uniform at bargain prices.
It's an expensive time for parents, so just think of Mama with more than 60 children needing new uniform!
We employ Sifa, a local tailor, to make our children's shirts, dresses, shirts and shorts - so it is jumpers (which are needed on cooler days)  and ankle socks (white fir girls, black for boys) that we have to buy.
And right now,  top of our shopping list are school V-neck jumpers in our uniform colour, bright red for both our girls and boys, and socks (black and white).

We know there are many of you who like to know what is needed, so that you can help us to get it. And both Asda and Matalan (pic right) have bright red jumpers in stock in their school uniform ranges at the moment.
So if you would like to help us build up a store, we would be so grateful. Any size from age 3 to 16 would come in for one of our children.
It shouldn't cost too much to post a jumper direct to the Happy House either - the address is Sue Hayward's Happy House, PO Box 796, Watamu, Kenya,  East Africa.
Thank you.
The links for the jumpers that would be just the job are: Asda (from £3)                :,default,pd.html
Matalan (£4-£7)
