WAYS TO SPONSOR
In 2014, money was raised to erect a roof over the children's dormitories to provide a drying area for their washing and an area for after school study. The area has proved to be very useful and it was enhanced in 2016, when a wall was added along one side, to provide protection when it rains. The floor area is only poured concrete and the children would like to have the floor tiled, to make it easier to keep clean and provide a cooler and more even surface for the them to sleep on, during the very hot summer months. The total cost is approximately £3000 and all money raised will go towards this project. Any outstanding balance will be raised at car boot sales through the coming year.
WHO IS DOUG?
Doug Hunter is a trustee of the UK charity Liberty Children's Home. He is 66 and this is his 4th London Marathon. His training is going well and he is hoping to beat his 2015 time of 4 hours 1 second (see photo). On this occasion he raised money towards the cost of solar power for the Home, which has now been installed and working for more than a year.
Also, as an alternative, you can sponsor Doug by donating DVDs, CDs and PC&video games, which the charity will sell to raise money. If you choose this option, either send or drop off to our address or email to arrange collection.
