Since the first day we laid the foundation stone in 2007 at The Good Life Orphanage, Father James Clarke and the Parishioners of St Anne’s Parish in Fairfield Manchester have been wonderful supporters of our charity. All through Lent the generous parishioners make soups and cakes each Friday and for a donation you can get a bowl of homemade soup and a piece of homemade Apple Pie or Cake, this year alone they have raised in excess of £1600 which is just unbelievable. From returning from The GLO last month Father Jim has been spreading the word and getting more people interested in the charity.

St Anne's Lenten Soup Kitchen

All the soup, cakes and time is given free of charge by the parishioners and Father Jim kindly co-ordinates the whole exercise with precision, actually we missed him today as he was officiating at a wedding in the church but we can confirm that the Leek & Potato Soup and the Apple Pie was just delicious and great time was had by all !!

Clare Broadhead, a teacher at St Anne’s School completed the Liverpool Half Marathon for The GLO on the 18th March this year, again all the parishioners, staff, pupils and staff at the school were very supportive and Clare raised over £900 for our charity. Clare volunteered at the orphanage last year so has a very close bond with us all.

A massive Asante Sana to each & every person who made a donation, baked a cake, made soup or helped in anyway to reach this brilliant amount and a special thanks to Clare for completing the half marathon and last but by no means least Father Jim for all your help, support and advice since Day 1, having you behind us makes our work in Kenya so much easier.
