The Maybole Visit

The children who visited Maybole are pictured below. The youngest was 8 years old, but most of the others were 11 or 12.

An extensive programme was arranged for the children running from around 9:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. each day. A great time was had by all, even if some of the carers did need a holiday after it was all over!

We were especially helped by the dedicated support of two Belarussian carers, Lilia and Tanya (pictured below) who acted as confidantes for the children as well as participating in all the normal tasks associated with looking after 12 active children.
