Cool running and Grazie Piera

Our great northern runner Will Gordon brought us smiles for his miles when he took part in the Leeds Half Marathon at the weekend.
Will, who is in Musyoka's sponsor family, smashed his fundraising target of £1,500  totalling a fantastic £2,257 in sponsorship from his fabulous family, friends, colleagues, and neighbours in the village of Thorner, near Leeds..
Will was disappointed that after making good time, he pulled a muscle which slowed him down but, despite the pain, he made it to the finish.
Thank you Will for all you do to help our family. Every penny will make such a difference to our family. 
Many thanks to everyone who donated.
Will is pictured with his children Georgia and Luke.

Grazie Piera

 Another wonderful friend, Piera Lauria, from Milan, has once again raised lots of money for our family.
Piera, who has visited Happy House twice with her husband, Oscar, and son Mattia, made a magnificent 800 euro from selling 2015 calendar featuring photographs taken at the Happy House and others taken by Oscar in both in Kenya and in Tazania.
The calendar with its vibrant images not only raises money but awareness too, as those who use the calendar are reminded of our children and our work every single day.
Piera and her friend Elena worked hard selling the the calendars which have brought us just so much.
Thank you Piera, Oscar and Elena for making our day!
