For summer ‘fun’
we need “u”!

Can you believe it’s already October? In just three short months we’ll be welcoming the new year!

With summer already on our doorstep the warm sunny days mean sunscreen, sunhats, swimming costumes, pool towels and all things bright and breezy.

But you’ll agree that these items don’t come cheap . . . especially not for 74 girls and boys! That’s why your support here will be such a BIG help.

Your gift today will not only mean our youngsters can have fun swimming and exercising their growing bodies – but they’ll also be reminded that there are wonderful friends like you – who care enough to make a difference.

The truth is, when summer – and the holidays – come round  – swimming’s one of their few activities our youngsters have to keep busy (and cool!) here at the home.

What’s more, your donation will mean we’ll also be able to surprise them with fresh summer fruits, refreshing juices and healthy treats to give them all the energy they need for the busy days ahead (and maybe even an ice-cream or two!)

So please can we count on you to make your donation right away to help give our boys and girls a summer filled with fun and great memories?

Thank you once again for all your help.

Gifts in kind and willing volunteers are also hugely appreciated. Please click here for more information, or telephone the home on
