On behalf of all in the photo and those that aren’t, a huge thank you for the generous donations from your all.
This event as well as the others we have already done together is typical of this Zusammen Arbeit, that brings great satisfaction to those involved and demonstrates how we are putting our, yours, all donations to good use. Doric members clearly pay out of Doric Ents.
You are all aware now about Schaki and what we are doing for them – But they are Germany wide SHG near to you for sure, whose kids and parents are all in the same boat.
As I have said before, we can plainly see the impact that we are making every time we meet. Everything is DU with the parents, the kids recognise us – perhaps they know that they are going to get sweets and gifts lol…… The parents continue to say that they are almost overwhelmed by the attention and generosity. Its because we have been touched and affected by their plight or life they have for ever and the sheer fact that Kids, babies – unborn babies having strokes is simply unbelievable – WELL IT IS NOW!!!!!
Doric will not stop in its role in this project.
In total 60 were able to make the effort and turn out for the event – 38 Schakis + 1 baby and 20 Dorics + one WM baby.
The Lodge paid the entrance fee for everybody (zoo gave us a great discount), gifts for the kids (Pannini Zoo Sticker Albums and Zoo Drink Becher and for the little ones Stofftiere hand puppets) and obviously waffles and crepes and doughnuts and pop and …. and Glühwein mit schuss to keep the big kids happy.
The GOTU did his bit too, ensuring that the weather was actually very pleasant – although this still causes friendly debate between the Germans and British. i.e. Im in a T-shirt and they are wrapped up……………… you all know what I mean.
Once again a massive thank you to :
Rose of Minden
Red Cross of Constantine
WBro Steve Barr – deserves a special mention too.
I would also ask that this thanks be passed onto those in your lodges that have contributed in any way.
