“I just wanted to say a big thank you, the children were all so overwhelmed with their bikes to see the looks on their faces was invaluable. It was great to be able to tell the staff at Lilly a little about what our charity does and I think they were all visibly moved by the children’s stories.
Please say a big thank you to Peter and his team they could not have been more obliging. I could not believe he had delivered the bikes before I managed to get two of the children home. As we climbed the stairs to their flat we were discussing where they would keep their bikes, they were so delighted as we got to the top of the stairs to see their bikes.
It is not often we are offered an opportunity like this, when we know what hardships or emotional traumas these children are facing, it is amazing to be able to offer them such a wonderful gift.
Please pass on our gratitude to Karin and the team at Lilly for making us so welcome.”
