A Very Special Birthday

 

Eleven years ago, we started sponsoring a young girl named Rebecca, with the profits we make from our Fruit Tuck Shop.  We decided to sponsor Rebecca, who lives in Ghana, because we wanted to help a child who was less fortunate than ourselves.  Every month we donate £15.00 to Plan UK which helps to provide schooling for Rebecca and ensures she has access to clean water, sanitation and health care. We write and receive regular letters and over the years have formed a special friendship with Rebecca and her family.  The exchange of letters and photographs also helps Rebecca learn about our lives and we in turn learn about hers.  This week, Rebecca turned eighteen and we are very proud, that thanks to our continued sponsorship, she is happy, healthy and still in full-time education.
