Ready, teddy, go!

Our Let's Do IT! computer appeal has been given a welcome £50 boost thanks to youngsters at a Blackpool school.
The School Council at Holy Farmily RC Primary School, North Shore,  wanted to help Happy House and decided to have a Guess the Name of the Teddy at their Christmas Fair,
Yesterday,  Elizabeth Gomm was delighted to go into school to meet the council and to receive the cheque, handed over by chairman Natalie Barber.
Elizabeth told them how important it was for our children to learn about computers in school to give them a headstart in the future.
She also told them how much had been happening since her last visit to their school and about the way we are working to make it possible for children to be reunited with relatives.
Teacher Jane Mather said she hoped they would raise more money for Happy House in the future.
Thank you to everyone at Holy Farmily, you are real stars!
The Holy Family donation brings takes our appeal to £770.
We must raise £3,500 to buy five new computers and to repair three more so we have enough to go round in computer classes in our Happy House School.
Maybe, like Holy Family, you could organise a fundraiser to help.  Every penny donated will help take us to our target and is truly appreciated.
