The Dream HomeThis has been an ambitious project. Turning an old college into a living home is no easy task but phase 1 is now complete. The home is a great place to welcome families and to give them a break from the busy-ness of their lives. Sometimes they come for a meal and other times they stay with us for a few days. Everyone comments on how peaceful and relaxing it is.
PartiesWe love to bring a few families together and give them a party. It's always a great occasion, with lots of fun and it gives the families a chance to get to know each other. Sometimes the children will do a little concert using their many different talents. Of course, presents are also very important and very much appreciated!
Home redevelopmentWe visit some situations where the foster parents have extended their homes, at great expense, just so that they can care for more children. Sometimes we see needs that cannot be afforded and we would like to help. It may be an extra bedroom or an inside toilet! Your donations help us to support such families and give them the facilities that they need.
Special days for mothersWith the help of a team of ladies from Gloucester, we have been able to organise some very special days for the foster mums. They work so hard caring for their children that we felt they deserved a little TLC themselves! These days are now very popular with the mums and many new friendships have been formed.
Family holidaysWe love to give the families a rest when they need it. We have lots of fun together and they are special times. This is one little thank you letter:
Hello, dear friends! My name is Kate. I am 13 years old. I want to thank you for your help to our family. This is the second year we come here to have a rest. This year we have been to various places. Most of all to I remembered aqua park, roundabouts and McDonald's. It was so awesome! We had lots of fun with family. We ate ice cream and that was a very cool time. Thank you for it!
