Berni ... need any knitting done? My Mother is a star at knit and crochet? However, you'd have to provide a pattern and I'd gladly pay for the wool.

Ah thanks a million guys you are simply the best: However, I have the knitting project sorted here in the UK. I am still working on the knitting project for Bulgaria. Last year we send boxes of wool over to the Home for the Elderly and we got them knitting for the Orphanages and the poor. They love it and want to continue but obviously we need to supply the wool. It was cost effective to us and kept them busy which in turn everyone benefited. So thank you for your wonderful offer of help but as you can see it is the wool that would be needed. I have written to 100's of wool companies and one or two small parcels have arrived, but as they say - every little helps.

What a fab pair you are :Hearts:Berni x

Thank guys always good to get feedback g

Here are some more items received from Adam in Ailsworth Cambs. He was searching the internet and found our website then emailed to ask if we would like some toys and bless him he even delivered them. I had a lovely afternoon sorting through there was lots of ohhhhing and awwwwwing and oooooh going on. Then came the washing and packing later, but of course I had to try everything in the kitchen, to ensure it works mind, so I had a tea party - I should have invited my friend round really. s It is fantastic, such wonderful gifts the children will be delighted with them. Well done and thanks a million Adam.

How lovely to have such good people around you and by the way those cakes look as though I could eat them :shocked1:I think your doing a marvelous job Berni and I'm sure its appreciated but all those who are helped. I know that perhaps I don't help you directly but I do in my own way and can I say that you should be knighted for all the work you do
