  • A main present for each child for Christmas morning
  • Each mum received a hamper including, dressing gown, camera, beauty products & candle

An amazing effort by all involved!

Philomena says “ I attended the party personally with my own children and left in tears… happy tears to see the smiles on the faces of the children and mums and sad tears of the stories I had heard on the evening. I most certainly am doing this every year. In all of the years we have been involved with charity work, I can honestly say I have never been so overwhelmed as I was with this project.”
