We certainly have our share of little catwalk queens at the Happy House.
When the latest parcel of beautiful dresses made by Dawn Spzak and her mum, Margaret Sumpter, arrived there was no shortage of eager girls ready to pose for a picture,
Dawn also popped in the lovely t-shirt her sponsor child Mercy is wearing, and she and her mum, a seamstress who as a young woman worked on gowns for the Queen, also made some handy drawstring bags.
Thank you Margaret and Dawn. As you can see, our girls think they look fab!

Off the rails
