Blankets are on their way!

A couple of weeks ago I drove down to Folkestone to meet with Ian Callander of Operation Sunshine. Some years ago Operation Sunshine helped us to ship some computers to Zambia, and we are are very grateful for their assistance once again.

On this occasion I had a car full of blankets crocheted by people of the Living Brook Benefice in the Diocese of Peterborough, Northamptonshire. A diverse group of people, including some pupils at Hackleton Primary School (boys too!) have been working away for many months making squares that were finally assembled into blankets.

Now, thanks to Operation Sunshine, they are on their way to Makeni Centre, for the use of children in St Nicholas Village, and (eventually) also for residents of our planned hostel buildings.

It was good to meet the team of people working in Capel-Le-Ferne who make possible this kind of aid. They are doing great work there, and deserve the support of their community. Long may their work continue!
