Aid arrives in Belarus!
Well the Aid finally arrived in Belarus in October 2011 and was distributed over Christmas to the many foster families supported by Top Kids Charity in partnership with One Community Gloucester.
Andrew and Avril (the founders of Top Kids) held 3 Christmas parties for the foster families – hosting nearly 200 people. The toys we gave over the last two years were used to give each child a unique and personal present. They had just enough of the right varieties for all the different ages of boys and girls – and every child was blessed… we never even had that in mind when we collected and sent them!
This Aid really does make a difference – and our vision is to increase the amount that we ship out every year. We would like to ship our next tonne by April 2012 so that it arrives for the next Ladies Team Trip in June. This is where we need your help! We need good quality – second-hand or preferably new – clothes, shoes and toys – we are particularly after children’s and young teens clothes. Toys need to be complete (no parts missing) and NOT battery operated.
Our drop-off days are the first Saturday of every month between 1000-1200 at Storage King, Unit 3 Barnwood Point, Gloucester, GL4 3HX
We are very grateful to all who are partnering with us on this Project, in particular to Storage King for their kind donation of storage space for Aid – and to the members of the Gloucester Breakfast Club for their ongoing support.
