Dropping in to celebrate with a friend

a hug from a friend

Valentina Zaharia, CID Ro’s Executive Director is on a speaking  tour of supporters groups in Cleveland  and the fundraising team in Yorkshire  While here,  Valentina  visited Kirkbymoorside  and  she just couldn't pass up the chance to meet Gwen Brown, a very active supporter of CID, who  knits beautifully handcrafted items for our children and inspires and organises the ladies from her local Methodist Church to help clothe hundred if not thousands of kids from the poorest homes and children units in Romania. Gwen and this team of deft and talented knitters have also made lots of beautiful items for Valentina to sell at fundraising events in Bucharest.

You might be forgiven for thinking 'well so do many of our other supporters'. What makes Gwen just that little bit ‘extra special’ is that this wonderful lady will celebrate her 100th birthday on 27th June.  Everyone at Children in Distress wishes Gwen a very Happy Birthday!
