From England with Love

We began the day by making a quick trip to ‘Food City’ to pick up sweets and ice creams to treat the nursery children. We arrived at the nursery and to the children’s delight, we distributed the sweets and ice creams and had a chat with the teacher regarding the quality of the food we supply, which she said was good so the arrangement will stay the same for the time being.

Later on in the day we distributed the clothes which were kindly donated to us. This was relatively calm and ordered, compared to previous experiences and everyone in the village was thrilled – the pictures tell it all. A huge thanks to everyone who donated clothes and shoes, you have really made a difference. The end of the distribution was marked by the handing over of a cricket bat which I had promised I would bring from England last time I came, to Udaya, for the village to use in their annual beach cricket match.


On the way back to the hotel, we were met by two of my favourite boys from the school. They had, unfortunately, missed out on the clothes distribution but we’ll make sure they get some before we leave.
