22,448 is the new total

Thanks to everyone who has dontated underwear this month with special thanks to Les and Ann Atkinson, Caroline Hunter, Wendy Crawford and Jane Hogg.

Also want to say a big thank you to Justine and Lynn (Angel Design Jewellery) for a great night on Friday 27th May. The girls were launching their new jewellery pieces and are donating 10% of all online sales to Smalls until the end of June. There was also a raffle and lucky dip which raised £113 – thanks to everyone for donating underwear too!

I said last month that I’d give you more information about the girls from Mashimoni that we are now sponsoring. Mashimoni school is located right in the heart of the Kibera slum (Kenya) and by sponsoring the girls we will be providing not only their education and school uniform but 2 meals a day. Rebecca and Winfrida are 6 years old, Nelvine is 9 and Patience is 10. There are 571 children enrolled at Mashimoni and as well as sponsoring the girls we are providing each child with 3 pairs of pants, we are in the middle of putting this together as the Gloag foundation have kindly agreed to transport these over which is great as means I don’t have to take these in August.

The “Charity Challenge” of turning my garage into “Pants Headquarters” took place this weekend. Thanks to Susan, Stella, Jane, James, Malcolm, Lynn, Alana, Carly, Colin and Leigh for giving up their time to clean, paint and restock.

On 29 May we joined Facebook so look us up as we only have 33 people who “like” us!
