Welcome back Mama and Papa

Mama and Papa are taking a break in the UK and enjoying catching up with friends.
Yesterday,  Terry and Wendy Burns came over to Poulton to see them.  Their friendship dates back to the days when the Happy House was being built and Terry heard Sue being interviewed on Radio Lancashire.
A co-founder of charity Furniture for Education Worldwide Terry was so touched by Sue's vision and work, he  offered to send a container of furniture to Happy House,  and since then it has been followed by more. 
He, Wendy and members of his family have visited twice - for the Happy House official opening six years ago today, and in 2011 when they played Santa to the kids!
Now Terry is looking to helping out again, which is absolutely fantastic news. 
Tonight Mama and Papa will be joining Elizabeth for a visit to Blackpool Soroptimists, 
Blackpool SI very kindly funded our secondary school science lab and Mama will be giving them  the latest news from school and family.
On Saturday,  Mama and Papa are VIP guests at our Happy House Spring Coffee Morning at Poulton Methodist Church, Queensway, Poulton, from 10am to noon.   
It will be a morning of fun and friendship. There will be a stall where kids of all ages can make their own Easter bonnet (£1 minimum donation), tombola, raffle, handicrafts and bric-a-brac and books. Plus lovely bracelets, hand-beaded in Watamu, for only £5.
Admission free. Tea/coffee and biscuits £1.

Entertaining time at Kidz Club

Kidz Club started with Mama's special song Butterfly, Flutterby -  sung extra loud in the hope Mama and Papa would be able to hear it in the UK!
Classes two and three recited a poem about good manners and courtesy and form one treated the family to a song.
Teachers Madam Milka and Madam Doris talked to the kids who are preparing for end of term exams in a couple of weeks.
