 Happy House birthday girl, Daniela, was all smiles when she took centre stage at Kidz Club.

Happy birthday Daniela.
Interfaith event
Elizabeth Gomm was delighted to represent the Happy House at an Interfaith Conference, hosted by Blackpool Muslim group Noor al Madina, at Blackpool Town Hall.
The event with the theme faith, unity and community brought together people of different faiths with the aim of creating greater understanding, plus highlighting the need to work together to benefit the local community.
The event was held to celebrate one of the most important occasions on the Muslim calendar,  Milad Un Nabi ,the anniversary of the holy prophet’s birthday,
Elizabeth told of how she had taken a leap of faith to work voluntarily for our charity after being inspired by charity founder Sue Hayward.
She told the gathering of the way Sue and her Happy House are saving and transforming the lives of vulnerable children.
"Every day I witness faith through the action of others.
 "People,from different walks of life, who invest their time, energy and money into helping to make life better and brighter for the children in our care. 
"It is thanks the faith of all those who believe in  what we are doing, who support us and  who care, that Sue's vision has become a reality and our Happy House children now have a bright future, where they can aspire and succeed."
The Happy House was an appropriate choice of subject for this event as Muhammad was an orphan and many of his teachings talked of helping others.
