Our Brian's Blackpool family

The school council
Our little Brian is part of a family even bigger than our own!
They all his friends at Devonshire Primary Academy, Blackpool.
The school has been sponsoring Brian since he came to us as a newborn six years ago,  and has helped in so many ways.
There's a display board in school devoted to Happy House and where, thanks to Mrs Liz Heaney who keeps it updated, the children and staff can follow the progress of their Kenyan friend.

Yesterday, Elizabeth Gomm went into school for two assemblies when she told the children in Keystage 1 and 2 a bit more about Happy House and the work being done by our wonderful Mama Sue and Papa Dave.
The kids were great and the keystage 1 kids joined in to sing along when she played a video of Brian and Rosie singing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. 
The children also enjoyed listening to stories about our children and had some interesting questions.
There were lots of volunteers to dress up in kangas (Kenyan wraps) and to try the handbeaded jewellery. 
Deputy head, Mr Dan Simm, told the children how proud he was of the school for supporting Happy House and Brian and thanked Elizabeth for telling them more about it.
He presented her with a cheque for Brian's birthday, which will go into his child savings account.
Thank you Mr Simm, Mrs Heaney and everyone at Devonshire for your continued love and support,
