It was my pleasure to visit Acorn Children's Ward at Whipps Cross Hospital today but this time it was to bring some presents (Waleda beauty products) for the nurses who I think do an absolutely amazing job throughout the year.
.A big thank you goes to Jo Pemaul who chose our charity to receive some of their beauty products which were kindly donated from their Kindness at Christmas Campaign. I decided that the products would go to the nurses on Acorn Children's Ward at Whipps Cross Hospital.

FTS is a project which FCGAGA has been running for just over a year and a half now, the aim of this project is to give breakfast to homeless people in east London once a week on a Friday morning. I would just like to thank all the supporters who continuously champion this cause and continue to do so it is very much appreciated by myself and the people who your generosity helps to support.
At Christmas FTS paid for a cooked breakfast at Morrison's in Stratford for several Homeless people who we regularly give a breakfast bag to. Sixteen homeless people were meant to attend however the final showing was ten and they had a very pleasant time indeed. A big thank you to Morrison's who not only donated forty pounds worth of vouchers but made all of us feel very welcome throughout our stay, thank you once again.
A big thank you to Haslers / Foundation for all the support that they continuously give to FCGAGA over the years which has benefitted the charity so much. Just before Christmas they kindly had a Xmas hamper delivered to me which was a very kind and generous thing to do.
A big thank you to Gareth, Vicky and the fitness group ( Wanstead ) who kindly raised some funds for the FCGAGA charity this was unexpected and yet so gladly received.
Toys were delivered to Newham General Hospital ( Rainbow ward ) on Wednesday 20th December from FCGAGA for the sick children who were in hospital over the Christmas period.
