Home news: Thanks at home and in the UK

Many thanks to the crafty ladies of Say it with Stitches who have raised £515 for Happy House.
Say it with Stitches Stall this spring and summer.
Patricia Beechey, a former headteacher and her friend Anna  have been joined by a few other retired creatives to make a whole range of little items that we have sold at various craft markets around their local area in Surrey.
Patricia said " I have to say that selling has been pretty difficult as people are so much more careful with their money recently, but they are generally much more generous when they hear about The Happy House and your work. 
We share your flyers and always explain about the wonderful work you are all doing.
We are going to have a little rest from stalls for the next few months, replace our stock and get ready for Christmas. 
 So fingers crossed, people will get into the spirit of Christmas and spend."
We are hugely grateful to Pat, Anna and their talented friends for all the time, talent and effort they put into raising money for our of family.
It will be used to buy the mattresses we so desperately need to replace.

Kidz Club thank you

There was a special thank you at Kidz Club   or school principal, Mr Laurent.
Kids Happy House Children's Home and School have just completed their exams and  Mama Sue wanted them say thank you to Mr Laurent for the way he has helped them to achieve better results,.
He had suggested study groups to give them an opportunity to work together and build strengths and also other ways of focused learning.
There was the usual singing and competition, with many happy voices joined in friendly combat! 
And even the aunties got up for a song - not that they needed too much encouragement!
