And it is a story that Elizabeth never tires of telling.
Yesterday, her lovely audience were members of the Ladies Guild at Victoria Congregational Church, Blackpool, who were deeply touched by the plight of the children who come to us and the way that their lives are being transformed.
They were full of admiration for Mama's extraordinary dedication and grateful that when she saw the troubled lives of so many kids she did not walk away from their problem but set about finding a solution, whatever the personal cost.
And there was special mention of Papa, her constant support.
The kind-hearted group made a donation of £40 and a collection raised another £36.05.
Our thanks go to them for their generosity.
