The 8th January may seem a long time away but you wont find it creeping up, what with all the Christmas festivities.   Not so in Somalia where, for many families, every day seems like a lifetime as they struggle against all the obstacles that war and famine throw in their way.

So now is the time to plan for the big outing in January and to begin filling your Sponsorship Card.

( Hint: Christmas is a great time for meeting friends and family who’ll be delighted to sponsor such a worthy cause).

You can get your card now by emailing Kevin Spain at
