Whilst Kevin was in Kenya, I attended The Pride of Eireann Awards at the Palace Hotel in Manchester on 13th June 2008. It was a brilliant night and I was absolutely amazed to receive an award for our charity work at The Good Life Orphanage.
We are so lucky to have a wonderful committee here in Manchester who supports us, Anne-Marie O’Malley, Catherine O’Gara, Karen Kilroe & Mike Flynn are our backbone and without their help we could not succeed in making our dream reality by building The Good Life Orphanage.
A special word of thanks goes to our dear friend Joe Casserley from The Full irish Radio Show who nominated us for the award. See you in Kikambala soon Joe.
Also to Eamon, Colin, Tim & last but by no means least Kay Flynn for listening to us chatter on about how to raise the profile of The Good Life Orphanage. Thanks for your input as well as the scones & jam from Anne-Marie & Catherine’s mum- makes the meetings run soo smoothly!
