Good friends gather round Mama and Papa

Mama and Papa are taking time to meet up with their many good friends while they are in the UK.
Mama is concentrating on building up strength in her fractured leg, working with Auntie Libby on finding new sources of fundraising,and enjoying the company of friends.
Terry and Wendy Burns, from Burnley, are among them.  Sue got to know Terry after he contacted her, before the Happy House was completed, to see whether he could help us by supplying furniture, much of it discard by Lancashire schools being refurbished, through the charity he found, Furniture for Education Worldwide.
Flashback to 2012
Two containers down the line, practically all the furniture in our Happy House and in our school has come through FEW, and Wendy and Terry have become firm friends.
Terry and Wendy have visited  Happy House twice, first for the opening and their second visit was Christmas 2012 when Terry played the role of Santa, with Wendy and their friend, Steve Durkin, as his two naughty elves.
Terry has made Mama and Papa a photo book of that very special Christmas and keeps a copy with him so that he can help us by telling his friends and contacts about the incredible work Mama and the Happy House are doing.
It's lovely now for Mama and Papa to be able to spend some time with Terry and Wendy and with the all the other friends who are so eager to see them.
