 Seasons greetings! 2010 is rapidly running out of time and the next decade is about to start.

Here in the UK we have had the coldest November on record with weeks of freezing temperatures, snow, ice followed by more snow and some really beautiful hoar frosts which have painted the countryside with a delicate lace of ice crystals.

fortunately the bad weather has not got in the way of a number of events including our annual charity dinner. 60 people braved the elements and were rewarded by a good meal in a very warm room (some complained it was too hot but it minus 3 degrees C outside) and superb entertainment by Colin Brown, magician and escapologist.

The evening raised a magnificent 1000 for the charity and that money is already on its way to Africa to pay for food and school fees for next term.

The poultry projects started earlier this year are now bringing in income to the two schools and another classroom has been finished in Kenya.

As we prepare for Christmas lets not forget our  friends in Africa and wish them a peaceful and happy Christmas.

We will, with your continued support, continue to make a difference to the lives of the orphans and vulnerable children we support in Zimbabwe and Kenya.

Remember every penny counts and every penny we have donated to us goes directly to help the children.

Have a merry Christmas and a happy new year.

We have a number of children who need regular financial support so they can go to school. The cost to add another child to our school in Kenya is 6 a month. This covers everything from tuition and two meals a day to uniform and exam fees. Please consider sponsoring a child for the new year.
