March and the third 2015 delivery From Bristol with Love: 6 Boxes of adult clothes clothes for the residents of Tigveni Centre for Integration.
Generously donated by the Romanian Pentecostal Church in Bristol and delivered by MaxiBus Travel, these boxes containing 60 kgs of adult clothes reached the beneficiaries several days later. Their joy and delight was the best possible reward for those who donated, sorted and deliver their gifts.
Also in March, we were delighted to receive one of our most substantial donations: we were absolutely thrilled to receive a generous donation from Ms Esther Keller-Pickup of Kids Company, of 467! brand-new pure-wool blazers for children between the age of 5-15.
After sorting and packing, the blazers will be sent as wonderful Easter gifts for various schools and day centres in rural and disadvantaged areas of Romania. From Bristol with Love invited the spiritual communities in the SW of England to identify and nominate the beneficiaries on a ‘first came – first served’ basis.
And away they go! We added more donations, more clothes, more toys, split them in two lots and here they stood ready for delivery to five Romanian counties: Maramures, Timisoara, Vaslui, Botosani and Suceava.
This month’s deliveries beat all our records. To put it in perspective: during the entire 2014 we delivered 1,540Kgs of aid. During this month alone, we delivered 610Kgs. Big, massive, huge thank you to all who made it possible.
