Christmas festival with Italian friends

 Our children were guests of the local Italian community when they celebrated a Christmas festival.
They had put up a tree on the roadside at Richlands and our children painted seed pods silver and red to decorate it.
There was singing and dancing and our Happy House kids were happy to take their turn to entertain and did their Mama and Papa proud, as always!
They enjoyed sweet treats and drinks and had a brilliant morning.
Thank you ViVi Watamu for inviting us to be a party of your special morning.

Homeward bound

Jo and Peter Reid, their son Maxwell and his friend Ben Cheston are now back home on the Fylde coast after an incredible visit to the Happy House.
Ben and Max were volunteering throughout their stay, and Peter and Jo also helped out in any way they could ... with Peter being given a starring role at our Christmas celebration.
Thank you Jo, Peter, Max and Ben for your support and your friendship.

On the ball

 Italian footballer Alessandro Lucrarelli  called in on the Happy House yesterday.
 Alessandro, who plays for Parma,  his wife Cristiana and sons Mateo,  Jacopo and Diego, who are holidaying in Kenya, brought with them many gifts including clothes and pencils.

They also made  a donation towards our food bill.
The kids loved meeting them all and we are very grateful to them for their generosity.
