First topic message reminder :

Hi Guys

Well I have managed to get a whole 3 weeks holiday time off at work for October g I did try for Sept but not possible. I also cleared the Garden Party date for Sat 6th Oct  We look forward to seeing you there this year.

I am in the process of sorting out the long to do list and will tick off accordingly
The main one is covered by Kevin Pescott Fine Meats as he has already confirmed he will be supplying all the meat for the BBQ which, of course is just fantastic and a brilliant start.

I am looking forward to all the planning again if you have any ideas do let me know. <!-- sChat -->c<!-- sChat -->

Thanks a million.

Oddy

Don't forget folks tomorrow Saturday 06 October is the day of the garden party and if you can get there I'm sure you will have a great time with the children and what's more the children would love to see you. g

Just spoken to Bernie and everyone is having a great time, the weather is fantastic and the children are loving all the attention from the visitors along with the gifts, she tells me that there are at least 3 visitors who are all dress in traditional Scottish kilts which I'm sure they will enjoy along with the sound of bagpipes.

Hi Guys

Well, we - (myself-being Mick, Bev, Tom &
Dot) all ventured to Silistra for the garden Party on Saturday and are really glad we made the decision to do so.
This was our first time visiting the Orphanage so didn't really know what to expect. On the day, we met some lovely, kind and friendly people in Silistra. This kindness started with a Police escort by the local bobbies who said "
follow them"
when we asked for directions from the town centre after our directions didn't tally with Bernie's directions!!!! On our arrival at the Orphanage we were greeted by both Bernie and Dougie - two really remarkable people who it is apparent to see give so much of their time and effort to the Orphanage and the children - hats off to you two - it was a pleasure to meet you both

We arrived and straight away it was plain to see that many people had donated their time and a lot more to make this day the success it turned out to be. We walked into the grounds where book stalls, kids painting, adopt a teddy bear, guess how many sweets in a jar (I was robbed), cake stalls, drinks stalls and various others were in full swing - a pleasure to see.
Throughout the day, we purchased various items from the stalls, bought tickets for the raffles and talked to many different people.
We purchased drinks and cakes for some of the children and it was a pleasure to talk to some of them (not that they understood), apart from some broken words and sign language.
The children of the Orphanage put on a great display of singing, dancing and other acts with the aid of a few others and it was very enjoyable to watch there faces as they participated.
We were also entertained to "
Jock"
the bag pipes player who played a few well known songs and he was watched by some of the children who looked on intrigued - was it the pipes or those hairy legs in a skirt???

At lunchtime, we were supplied with a bbq style meal to purchase and once again, hats off to everybody involved in the food. The burgers and sausages (some said were deer, some said ostrich) - whichever, they were bloomin tasty!!!! Big round of applause as I say, the food was excellent and the staff the same

In the afternoon, one of the highlights was watching Bernie &
Dougie giving out to the Children (of various ages) the many gifts, toys, clothes, shoes, etc, to the children. Me personally thought this would be like a rugby scrum at Twickenham, how wrong I was - the children reacted brilliantly just taking things and you could see the joy and appreciation on their faces - brilliant to see and witness!!!

Later on there was the raffle of many things to all who had bought tickets - (great items to be won by the way) - I was robbed again.!!!
After that there was an auction of some really good donated items as well - Tom will remember that with fondness (Big Kid) - Dot has now become an X-Box Widow!!!!

One of the last things we saw was Dougie and Bernie giving out - (throwing), many, many, small wrapped "
personal gifts"
to the children, haha - now this was like a scrum at Twickenham - but all done in good fun. The children who had the baggiest t-shirts on were glad of their choice of clothing for the day - they could carry the most items in their big t-shirts!!!

In brief, Bernie &
Dougie, you are two very special people and we thoroughly enjoyed our day
To yourselves and all the others involved, a BIG WELL DONE

We left, having taken many thoughts and memories for the day - a big Thank You.

Best wishes,
Tom &
Dot, Mick &
Bev

Services - Sunny Beach)

See you in 2013

It sounds to me that you may have had a better time than the children but men never grow up do they :LMHO:It also sounds like the day went with the sound of success and that all that were there enjoyed it to. I love to hear what others say about events like this it sort of gives us all a different view point which I feel is very important. Glad you had such a good time and I'm sure the children did to as they always enjoy this day and the chance to see some visitors and supporters who have their interest at heart H

Hi nu2bg

Yes, just to reiterate,

We thoroughly enjoyed the day and definitely know that the children did.
Like I say, it was our first visit and will definitely look at the calendar for the same time next year.

To anybody who feels passionate about these things, also mark the date on your calendar and give Bernie &
Dougie and everybody involved, your support for a great day and a great cause!!!!

What a fantastic report of the days event :Congtrats:its comes through in the way you have written this that you are also very passionate about the Children in Bulgaria and their need and how important it is for them to have visitors such as yourself and for them to know that there are people in the world who do care about them. I see you all had a lovely day and so did the children. Well done to all those who made it, unfortunately for me I couldn't make it this year but I'm sure the children all had an amazing time. s
