Thank you Drino for the loan of their van. And finally Thank You Manu for giving Santa a helping hand.The lights went up but they will have to come down at some stage so if you would like to help please contact Dawn @ 086-3115647. If you would like to contribute to the finances you can do so in the Credit Union.(please leave your name) We would like to take this oppertunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas
