Christmas 2020

Thank you for sticking with us, season of thanks

Season of thanks

 

What a year!

2020 has thrown a lot at us and it has not been easy. Like many others, we have had our ups and down’s but for now, we are focussing on our successes. We would like to end the year with gratitude and a positive outlook for the future.

So, we would like to say thank you to everyone who has supported us this year. Thank you for donating, volunteering, reducing your costs for us, sharing our social media posts, telling a friend about us. Whatever you have done for us, we’re grateful.

"When we went into lockdown, I cried for most of the first few days. I had no contact with anyone,  I have never felt so alone.

Then on the fourth day, Lyn from Deafblind UK called me! She asked how I was, and suddenly I felt that I do matter, that somebody out there does care. We agreed that we would speak every week, and I knew that I had something to look forward to each week, and most importantly that I wasn’t alone." Read more...
