We have a lovely report of two special children who did a great thing recently
Carolyn's grandchildren Annabelle and Daniel were moved by the plight of children in undeveloped countries
who had to walk on average 3.7 mile round trip to use a toilet.
They linked up with a charitable organisation “toilet twinning“ - LINK
They have done a sponsored walk of just over that distance for this charity.
They aimed to raise £60 which would pay for a toilet, they have raised in excess of £135.
Brandon Parish churches congratulate Annabelle & Daniel on their tremendous effort and achievement
If anyone wants to donate to the toilet twinning charity they can do so on the LINK above


“And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply.
Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows.
And the people began to think differently. And the people healed.
And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal.
And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses,
and made new choices, and dreamed new images,
and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed.”
