Once again our generous donors Nicky Pharoah and Colin Newbold co- proprietors of Learning Curve, Tunbridge Wells are planning to donate School uniforms and shoes to Children’s at Massmulle school (Kamburupitiya) and Puswelkada School (Galle) . The donations would take place at the mid January 2016 . Nicky and Colin would also continue with their current Scholarships given to 10 bright children in Kamburupitiya.
We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to them for their continuous support for the poor children In Srilanka
This is Nicky and Colin’s Christmas message for all their friends and business associates
It’s been a tough year for a lot of people. Bad things have happened in the world, both human and natural. But at TLC, we know that kindness and hope go a really long way, and our Christmas message is one which looks to the future.
As many of you know, we work closely with two schools in Sri Lanka, giving some much needed support for new supplies, as well as sponsoring some of the children. We’re always completely humbled by the gratitude our donations are met with, and by the passion for learning and contributing to society that the students display. We’d like to share with you the letter we received from them recently, updating us on their progress.
What amazes us most, and makes it so worthwhile, is the ripple effect that hope can have on a whole community. A handful of children get a good education, get good jobs, and then a few more, and more, and soon the wider community is benefiting. More jobs, more amenities, a better reputation.
So this Christmas, our message is about kindness, and the wider impact our thoughts, words and actions can have. We cannot avoid tragedy, but helping others will always count for something, and kindness, love and hope can be the most powerful force on earth.
Merry Christmas to you all, and may the new year be filled with kindness.
From your team at TLC
