Coffee Morning to Help Children

 

A coffee morning at the home of Vera and Brian Frost of Mill Road, Hethersett, raised £155 for the Wiltshire-based Hope and Homes for Children Charity which works to help orphaned and abandoned and vulnerable children in Central and Eastern Europe and Africa. 

The charity has come to the fore in recent days following the arrest of Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic. Hope and Homes for Chirdren was founded by Beccles born Colonel Mark Cook and his wife Caroline. Col Cook was formerly the British UN Commander in Croatia and led a project to reconstruct the Bjelave Children’s Home in Sarajevo. The orphanage was practically destroyed in the mid 1990s by shrapnel fire before it was reconstructed under the Hopes and Homes for Children banner. 

Local co-ordinator for the charity, Joan Green from Hethersett said she was pleased that Hopes and Homes was able to help many threatened children throughout the world. 

“The arrest of Karadzic and the work of the charity has proved that good can come out of evil and that thousands of little children can be helped,” she said. 

The East Anglian support group for Hope and Homes was the first to be set up in the country. More details on the charity are available by contacting the East Anglian Chairman Hilary Kisby on 01603 868539 or secretary Dr Sheila Ogden on 01603 622840 or from the charity’s web site at www.hopeandhomes.org
