Brown­ies and Rain­bows help ap­peal

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk & world Update -

BROWN­IES and Rain­bows from the Or­tons have do­nated more than 20 shoe­boxes of good­ies to chil­dren at a Bul­gar­ian or­phan­age.

The young­sters filled the boxes with toys, clothes, toi­letries and sweets and pre­sented them to Ber­nadette and Dougie Leggett, who have been rais­ing funds and ap­peals for the or­phan­age, fol­low- ing their visit while on hol­i­day two years ago.

The cou­ple were struck by how lit­tle the young­sters had and on their re­turn home to Winy­ates, in Or­ton Gold­hay, Peter­bor­ough, they de­cided to make reg­u­lar trips to see them.

They also col­lect goods in­clud­ing toi­letries, books and games to give to the or­phans.

Ber­nadette said: “We are also look­ing for knit­ting wool and nee­dles to knit gar­ments and blan­kets for the chil­dren.

“We are try­ing to raise funds for a large tram­po­line for the chil­dren and we are never too short of cloth­ing for three to 18-year-olds and ne­ces­si­ties like toi­letries.”
