Christmas countdown: Getting in voice

A week from today Santa will be landing his sleigh at Happy House.
 He's answered our request for an early call because he knows il all about the big family reunion we have planned for our resident kids and those who have been repatriated to relatives.
The children who were previously in our full time care, now living back with relatives with our support, arrive on Monday and will be staying until Friday.
There's huge excitement as everyone is getting ready for their arrival and a five-day Christmas celebration.
And a party wouldn't be a party without a few songs, here are some of our little ones practicing their routines!

Make a Christmas gift

If you would like to make a gift to Happy House for Christmas, here's how.
We are keeping our Festive Holiday Fund appeal open so that anyone who would like to make a Christmas gift to our family can do so there - every penny will directly benefit our children.
We were thrilled and very grateful to reach our £1000 target in just a week.  It will be used to bring together our 70 resident kids and 60 repatriated into families, for a week of fun together at the Happy House in early December when they will enjoy a fun-packed programme of activities, special meals and a visit from Santa.
Any additional money donated will be used to help support the children living in our Happy House and those we continue to support now they have returned to live with relatives in the community.
Every penny will make a difference to children's lives. Thank you.
