Our wonderful 'parcel opening' team!

The volunteer team turn up each week to sort your squares, hand warmers, tops, hats and cuddlies so that more and more vulnerable and deprived children are given a sense that they are valued and cared for!

Happy Birthday Wandi !   It looks like everyone had a lovely time celebrating Wandi's  "Sixth" birthday !!

Oh Wandi you absolute darling. Happy Birthday and thank you for all that you do for KAS. :)

HURRAH, GOOD NEWS FROM WENDY!

Exciting news - attached is a photo of the new Bryanston Post Office! They 
hope to be able to move in on 21 December and then, with a bit of luck, 
things may return to some form of normality.

YAY!! Looks great!!

I hope it all works out. This looks good from the outside.

Great.

Veery promising !!! Lets hope 2016 goes well for the post !

MESSAGE FROM WENDY : 

We had a nice big delivery last week which was

great. This week I am going to collect mail from the new Post Office and

will be sure to let you know what it is like.

Great pictures.  Can someone tell me the story of the stuffed bunny on the table?  It has been keeping the ladies company for several months now.

WOW!  What a lovely collection of photos.  So many beautiful squares, blankets, and toys!  And a introduction to each person makes it extra special.  Thank you!

That pile of warmth ready to be distributed must seem odd at the moment (I see that fan behind Lindi) but winter will come and oh ... won't they keep some little people warm then :)  xo

It's great to meet the team and to see all the wonderful, colourful goodies!

I am thrilled to see two of my blankets, the rainbow stripes in the Mandela Day themed pile and directly across from this one, a Christmas themed blanket with a red square with green and white woven through :))

Congratulations Christine, it´s a miracle that you can see  two of your blankets among so many things.

CREATECARE GLOBAL

"CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to bring hope, support and comfort to children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors. The second, and in our view equally important, is to spread the message to the world."

Our thanks to CreateCare Global for supporting the Square Circle Forum and helping to spread the wonderful work that KAS does.
