Making new friends

There was a very warm welcome for our long-time Happy House friends Scott and Laura Webster when they went to talk at their local church about their many experiences volunteering with our family.
One of their first volunteer visits
Scott and Laura were speaking to the Friendship Group at Royal Wootton Bassett Methodist Church, an audience of 25  people from many different backgrounds including former social worker, probation officer and teachers.
Scott and  Laura illustrated their talk with pictures they'd taken themselves, plus a video and presentation provided by our UK coordinator Elizabeth.
Scott said: " Some of the people there had volunteered overseas themselves and they were all very impressed by is being achieved for children at the Happy House and its school."
The group very kindly made a donation of £50 to help.  Our thanks to them and to Scott and Laura.

Charity shop

If you are anywhere near the Fylde coast please pop in to see what we have on sale this week in a charity shop in Poulton.
Poulton Methodist Church owns the shop which it allows local charities to use, on a rota basis, for one week each year in return for a percentage of the takings. It's a great resource for charities like our own.
We will be opening from 10am-3pm today, tomorrow and Thursday.
