After a long old journey by boat our barrels of donated books have arrived to the spice island of Grenada. Thanks to Deb Eastwood the books have been distributed between schools in need for many children to enjoy. We have been sending books every three months for almost five years now and they are always much appreciated.
Next week we will fill the Christmas barrels for @Grenada Gncd with presents and treats for the children on their big day.
Thank you to everyone who has donated. ♻️❤️♻️ ...

The first of 140 new toys, that you have all donated over the year, have been given to the children over at Akwaaba as Christmas gifts. If your children have any unwanted and unused gifts they’d like to part with we would love them! Here comes Christmas!
Akwaaba is a Hackney-based social centre for migrants. They offer a space for rest, play, learning and mutual support. Akwaaba is for all migrants regardless of immigration status, ‘race’, religion, country of origin, age, sexual orientation, gender identity and (dis)ability.
They believe that no-one is illegal and are committed to actively opposing racism and all other forms of discrimination and oppression.
Their aim is to build community and foster care, cooperation and solidarity. As a community, they try to make decisions collectively and give all members an equal say in how the social centre is run. Akwaaba is a volunteer-run space. ...

We always love receiving photos of the children enjoying the toys that we give. Most of the time we are unable to share the photos with you as they are of children living in very difficult situations and it certainly would not be appropriate to photograph or share. We give hundreds of toys a week and this week has been no different. Here are some of the nursery class at Stroud Green enjoying their dolls house. The teacher made some fantastic figures for the children to play with. She created ‘block’ figures with photos of each child on each block. fantastic idea!! ...
