Extra staff for the holidays at Casa Valentin

One of our former carers, Violeta, who retired for personal reasons a couple of years ago, has re-joined the staff temporarily to help out during the very busy holiday season.

Easter Sunflower Seeds 2017

This summer edition of Sunflower Seeds depicts a cross-section of everyday life at Casa Valentin, and advertises the need for some new fruit trees for the garden. Most of the crops grown over recent years have been destroyed by flooding, and it seems sensible to replace these with hardy fruit trees instead.

Our Coffee Mornings continue to provide a time of fellowship for those who attend, whilst attracting a small but regular income for the charity each month. In June we will be holding our annual Summer Romania Days, designed to have a wider appeal with all kinds of gifts on sale. The proceeds will, of course, go towards the upkeep of Casa Valentin in Cataloi, Romania. Over 300 shoe boxes covered in bright Christmas wrapping paper and containing exciting toys, sweets, stationery, toiletries etc were sent to Romania last year. There were enough of them for each child aged 3-14 living in Cataloi and its sister village of Frecatei. For most of these children, this was their only present this Christmas. Our thanks go to all who contrubuted to this distribution.
