We would like to thank Brenda Simpson of Whitby for all her co-ordination and hard work over the last 8 years. She has done such a wonderful job for Felsted Aid for Deprived Children and the families and children of Ukraine.
The following is an article from 'The Voice of Whitby' by Brenda Simpson
"Thank you to everyone who donated items.
Pauline and Alan from Felsted Aid for Deprived Children brought a big van and trailer through to Whitby on Saturday 10th September and returned to Essex with a full load.
There were 105 full banana boxes, 50 big plastic bags, three sewing machines, a dolls house and pushchair, 5 bikes, elbow crutches, stoma dressings, cuddly toys, warm winter clothes, the list is endless.
We are so grateful to receive more than 1000 toothbrushes, toothpaste and shampoo.
This Charity runs on teamwork and we would like to thank everyone especially the very generous people of the Whitby area. I am told we have raised £7,230.32 at the coffee mornings held over the last eight years.
If your children have outgrown their shoes, wellies or slippers it would be great if you could keep them until the van comes next June.
Thank you all so much for your support over the years."
