When we were approached by one of our customers - Jackie Lloyd Davies - and asked to donate some of our products for a very special charity, we were more than happy to help.
Jackie was flying to Sibiu in Romania to work as a volunteer at a summer camp at the 'Little John's House Orphanage', and was hoping we would be able to provide some felting products so the youngsters could have the opportunity to experience this craft.
We were, of course, delighted to be able to send Jackie some of our products, which we're delighted to say were put to fantastic use at the orphanage!
Jackie has been kind enough to send some photos from her incredible two weeks volunteering.
With the help of many priceless volunteers, Little John's House opens its doors in the summer to children with special needs from in and around Sibiu during the annual Summer School. They are given the chance to take part in lots of fun and exciting activities and enriching experiences involving social interaction, experimental play, observational learning, music and art therapy. For many of these children this is the only "holiday" they have in the whole year and often the only time their parents/carers get a break.
