EXPLORE DIDSBURY, July 2012, a fun day for everyone

Despite the rain some of our stalwart supporters came along and walked the Didsbury Trail.  Fortunately they really enjoyed it and suggested another date.  A few weeks later with the sun shining lots of people arrived at Sonia's house to do the second attempt at the trail.  After two hours of walking and exploring everyone enjoyed afternoon tea in the garden.  We raised a grand total of over £2,000.  TERRIFIC! 

Many thanks to our sponsors and supporters. 


DIDSBURY FESTIVAL, JUNE 16TH 2012

Once again we did a table at the Didsbury Festival.  We sold Zulu jewellery and crafts.  This year we decided to have some fun with our 'human fruit machine' one of Sue Raddings fantastic ideas.  The laughter was quite hysterical from both adults and children.  If you don't know what this is about come and join in the fun with us next year!

September 2011 Visit

              We are so pleased that all our youngsters are doing so well.  We have 2 boys who have jobs, 2 at college, 7 taking their Matric (final exams) and all the others are attending school everyday.  This is a fantastic achievement.  During this visit when Vivien joined Sonia for a week, we checked on grants, food vouchers, housing, schooling and day to day living.  We organised Friday afternoon youth groups and a wonderful day out on our last Saturday, when the children canoed, played and swam at the Twin Streams Environmental Centre.  It was good to hear and see these children, who have such difficult lives, enjoying themselves.
