31 May Open Day Elche Children’s Care Home 31st May 2015
Last Sunday over 80 volunteers, fund-raisers and guests attended an open day at the Elche Children’s Care Home. They were given a tour of the facilities, including the outside areas featuring the polytunnels and vegetable garden which had been provided with funds from the charity. The staff and children served everyone with a BBQ whilst being entertained by Gregg (who kindly donated his services for the afternoon). The children also sang for us and gave out hand-made thank-you cards and gifts to everybody.
The director, Mohammed, thanked everyone for their generosity and said that although these children are not living with their own families the moment, today they felt as if they were part of one big family. He also said that the aim of today was to thank the many people who volunteer and raise funds for the children. It was a lovely afternoon and an opportunity for people to see how the funds they raised are used and to meet the very grateful children who they support.
We also had offers from new volunteers to help the charity, for which we are very grateful.
