Tucking in and Scouting around

Peter Ward and his colleagues at Cladceil Ltd are tucking into sweet and savoury treats and making a pretty penny for the Happy House.
Peter's accounts assistant Shelley Manson is in charge of keeping the Tuck Box replenished and in the six months leading to Christmas sales raised £75.
Pete and his family, wife Joanne and  sons Oscar and Dylan, live in Nottingham and are in the sponsor families of our Oscar and Farida.
Pete says the Happy House Tuck Box is now an office fixture: "We continuing to eat and raise money!"
Thank you to everyone at Cladceil, your help is very much appreciated

Scouting for new friends

Elizabeth Gomm made lots of new friends for our family when she set up a Happy House stand at the West Lancashire Beaver Scouts Leaders Day in Warton, near Preston, on Sunday.
It was a day when leaders could find out what activities and challenges organisations offer to the youngest branch of scouting, and also to discover the work being done by some charities including our own.
That were we invited was thanks to Lizzie Goldsack, from Ist Staining Beaver Scouts, who Elizabeth got talking to on a train a couple of years ago!
 Lizzie has been following the progress of Happy House ever since.
On Sunday, Elizabeth handed out lots of information and was delighted with the response from leaders including Deputy County Commissioner for Preston, Lesley Thomas, who is pictured with one of the scouts who was enjoying the day,
Thank you West Lancs Beaver Scouts for letting us be a part of your special day
