Oh my goodness, is it really July?

I can't believe it's July, seems like Christmas was just a few weeks ago! We have been so busy with the daily demands of the day centre, court dates for our street folks in prison, conferences, all the charity administration, finishing off the new medical/dental room ... and a new baby in the family too! Several times I have started posts and been interrupted, other times I have searched through photos to find the right ones to post ... but the end result is total failure! I hereby resolve to do better ...

Christmas 2011 at the "Secret Garden"

We had five Christmas parties in total with different groups of children, families and street folks. It was hard work, REALLY hard work, but worth while! We had groups of children and young people from Kindergartens and schools come to bring gifts and carol sing to us and our folks sang to them in return, it was lovely.

Local people came in droves with gifts of clothing, food and even money. We had some money given towards Christmas parties from our partners, PCF Romania Projects in Perton Wolverhampton but apart from that everything was donated locally and the quantity of food and other gifts we received was quite overwhelming! Even Rosie and Yasmina made some cakes with Amy! We are so thankful to all who helped to make the parties memorable for all who attended.
