Organised party for 95 children in Sunils Beach Hotel on Sat 19th Feb. Still waiting for shoes sizes of the children to order shoes but may not get in time as once again Wed and Thurs are holy days so nobody works!! Ordered 110 HAT Foundation rucksacks to give to the children at the party.

Football tournament being organised by Shirantha. Paid some money for posters etc. Tournament to be held on 26th & 27th Feb. Medals and Cups to be awarded to winners and runners up. KCS transport services are now the main sponsor of the football by donating a whopping £250 to sponsor the event.

Checked up on a few of the sponsored children and will continue to do so.
