Thank you to the Rochdale Rotary for the invitation to speak at tonight’s weekly dinner at the Golf club. I was made very welcome and enjoyed a lovely meal.
The presentation showed our humble beginnings and how it’s grown into the monster it now is. It all began as a way of getting your unwanted baby stuff to some children and babies in desperate need – 3 containers later and it was all so worthwhile. The staff, children and babies at Forever Angel’s baby home in Tanzania all benefitted from your donations,
Then the help we give to local groups with little or no budgets keeps them going,
The Resource Centre is helping families that are struggling especially women fleeing violence and getting kids up off the floor into a warm bed,
The help for new mums identified by midwives on the Maternity Ward as likely to be taking a newborn home to very little.
And all the disability stuff that keep coming in and soon go out again.
Afterwards there were so many interesting questions that I was happy to address.
I enjoyed the evening, no one was asleep .
Thinking most went away wiser .
