£5,366 closer to Building a Bright Future and birthday greetings

£5000 and growing!
Our Happy House Building a Bright Future £25,000 appeal to finish, furnish, resource and staff (for the first year) has passed the 20% mark and is growing.
We must have the school ready to open by January ready for its first intake of students starting the new academic year.
With such a tight deadline we are knocking at every door we can to try to raise the money needed, and are so grateful to all those of you who are supporting our appeal and investing in the future of our children.

It is only with your help, that we can make this happen.
Thank you to Susanna Gregorio, who works with her husband Livio Leardi, owner a chain of fitness centres in Italy, for raising £345 at GetFit Milan during the summer.
Susanna, and six year old Levian, to whom she is guardian and Mama, arrived back in Watamu this week ready for Levian to rejoin  his friends at Happy House school after the holidays in Italy.
During that time Susanna, who adores fashion, sold of items from her personal wardrobe and also sold surplus GetFit uniforms to raise money for our appeal – with the valuable assistance of Levian!
Mama Sue and Papa Dave were delighted to to see Susanna and Levian back at Happy House and to receive their donation which brings our appeal to £3,366.68
Thank you Susanna and Levian for being such wonderful members of our family, and to everyone at GetFit who supported their fundraising.

Birthday greetings

There were two birthdays to celebrate this week.
Sifa, one of our very first Happy House kids,  has grown up into a lovely young man celebrated his 16th birthday with Papa presenting his gift to him at Kidz Club.

Auntie Libby had the pleasure of handing a birthday gift to Charity, who came to us a a very sick baby, who is now six.
