Good Life Orphanage
The Good Life Charity was set up by Bury couple, Mary and Kevin Maguire. They have built and continue to maintain an orphanage and school in Mombasa, Kenya. We have supported the orphanage every year since 2008 and have set up ongoing links so that the children and their parents can see exactly how the money is helping. As we feel that it is such a worthy cause we plan to continue the relationship with the orphanage in the years to come.
We have asked parents to bring in any unwanted shoes for the orphanage which have since been sent over to Kenya. The shoes were very much appreciated as the vast majority of the children walk everywhere barefoot, increasing the chance of serious infections.
Our children have also drawn pictures, made songsheets and nursery ryhmes books which have been taken to the orphanage for the children to learn the songs which are regularly sung in our nurseries. Parents have also offered help for example, one parent working for an international haulage firm has offered to help send supplies and equipment to the orphanage.
