CAMEO gems raise £520

Bric-a-brac sales have netted a gain for our Happy House family,
The members of Poulton Methodist Church CAMEO women's group chose our Happy House as the charity to benefit from sales of bric-a-brac and cards held weekly at the church Saturday coffee mornings and at the CAMEO meetings.
And to give all the group's members an insight into the work of our charity Elizabeth Gomm went in to give them a talk back in November.
On Saturday, she was delighted to return to the church to receive a cheque for £520.
She told the gathering: "Without organisations like your own, your friendship, your prayers and the funds you raise we wouldn't be able to change the lives of so many children."
Back in November, we were desperate to get in the money we needed to finish our secondary school and on Saturday she was able to tell the the school is now finished and open.
The money raised will help support some of the youngsters from abject poverty who have scholarships to Happy House school.
