Joy Murphy: January 2017
Thank you for all your gifts to take with us to Kenya for the children — we have over-filled our 15 extra cases and most of us are squeezing things into our own luggage too. If you have already bought something, then please give it to Helen, Paul or me and we will manage to carry it — even if we have to wear it! Otherwise, if you were going to but haven't yet bought it, we will happily accept a donation in lieu — much easier to carry!
Thank you again for all your support throughout the year. (Since writing this, Joy has had a minor stroke but is recovering well. Our prayers are with Joy and the wonderful work of the Karibuni Children charity. She will not be able to go to Kenya this year but Helen will be pleased to receive anything on her behalf.)
