THANK you to Simon Landles for running the London Marathon in such a fantastic personal best time and all those people who sponsored him in aid of Saltmine Trusts work in Bulgaria.

THANK you to Simon Landles for running the London Marathon in such a fantastic personal best time and all those people who sponsored him in aid of Saltmine Trusts work in Bulgaria.

Having visited Bulgaria for the first time with my family last October I can ensure you that the money is going to a good cause.

My husband has supported the work of Saltmine, in Bulgaria, for many years and in that time has made many aid visits taking teams to renovate and maintain the orphanage in Kerman.

As a mother I was very moved to see the numbers of children in the orphanage that we visited, most of whom were desperate for love and attention and the staff do the best job they can with such limited resources.

Last year I held a Krasif (which means beautiful in Bulgarian) jewellery party in our home. This is jewellery made by Bulgarians in the orphanages, day centres and churches that Saltmine support. This is a way of giving people worthwhile activity and employment. They produce beautiful very reasonable pieces which make ideal presents.

If anyone would like to find out more about Saltmines work in Bulgaria or hold a Krasif jewellery party please contact me or my husband on 07939 198749.
