Busy time on the coast

 What a busy weekend it's been for Happy House helpers on the Fylde coast.
Andrea and Joanne
Our volunteers have been helping to collect admission to the Truly Scrumptious Vintage, Handmade and Music Fair at Blackpool Winter Gardens over both Saturday and Sunday.
The very generous organiser of the fair, Dotty Delightful is donating half the door money to Happy House - we are yet to have a final figure but it promises to bring us a healthy amount.
Mama and Papa called in to see Auntie Libby and volunteers yesterday and to admire one of the four new pop up banners, donated to us, which were on their first outing this weekend.
Papa and Laura
Many thanks to Susan Carr, Andrea Manders, Joanne Rossall, Charlotte Rossall, Annie Whittle, Jackie Fineman, Lynn Baya Thoya, Lesley Pidcock, Kathryn Pidcock, Pauline Royle and Susan Sadler for giving up their time to help.
And a huge thank you to Dotty for being so generous to our family. Every penny will make a difference to the little lives who depend on us.
On Saturday, Auntie Libby joined Mama and Papa and their two special visitors, Scott and Laura Webster,who are great friends to Mama ,Papa and our family,   at Freeport Fleetwood as the port's outlet shopping centre celebrated a Best of British weekend.
They were guests of manager John Magee (pictured with Mama) who was so supportive in helping to equip a flat for Mama and Papa when we knew they would have to come to the UK for treatment on Mama's leg.
Scott, Laura and Libby
It was a real celebration of all things British with entertainment from XFactor finalist Jonjo Kerr, Made In Liverpool, the official Beatles Tribute Act of the Cavern Club, dance moves from Scream Theatre School, Beefeaters, Giant Pound Coins, Giant Seagulls, Prince Harry, a Black Cab photo booth, Strawberries and Cream and Pimms 
We were happy to be  part of the day.
