Time for home... but a final day making new friends

Mama Sue and Papa Dave head back home today after three busy weeks in the UK.
They have enjoyed seeing many old friends and making new ones.
Yesterday, our new friends were the 300+ children and staff at Lord Street Primary School, Colne.
Mama, Papa and Elizabeth enjoyed a Happy House assembly with the children.
Mama told them all about the Happy House family,  their home and their school.
Elizabeth told them the story of one of children, Fred, starting with his rescue in 2011.
The children had lots of questions to ask keeping Mama very busy!
The school is hoping to forge a link with our school so that the children can enhance each others lives and education.
They also plan to fund raise for Happy House and when Mama asked if wanted to help raise some money for Happy House all hands went up.
It was a lovely morning and we are grateful to deputy head James Pidcock for inviting us. James and his family are great freinds to Happy House. His mum and dad, Lesley and Alan, sponsor Janet and Priscilla,
This week Brenda and Red Groves and their granddaughter, Chloe, came over to the Fylde to see them. Red and Brenda, whose whole family are involved in helping Happy House and sponsoring, live in Wantage and Chloe, who sponsors Said, lives in Stafford.
Brenda and Red brought over lots of useful items, includinge ducational aids, for Sue and Dave to take back along with hugs for their sponsor child, Charity, and Brenda's brother Terry's sponsor children Brian and Lovinne.
Mama and Papa are looking forward to seeing Brenda and Red again in the autumn when they visit Happy House.
We wish Mama, Papa and Elizabethm, who is travelling back with them, a safe trip and happy homecoming.
