Silistra Orphanage Garden Party 2011

Many guests are expected to share in a fun day at the Dimcho Debelianov Orphanage garden party in Northern Bulgaria’s Danube city of Silistra.

The event will take place on Saturday October 1st and will have a wealth of entertainment to be enjoyed by all concerned.

The fund raising event which is held annually and is organised by Dougie and Berni Leggett from England is hoped to raise money to provide better conditions and happier lives for the children of the orphanage. The garden party is only a small part of the work in which Berni and Dougie strive for, the rest of the year sees them liaising with some of their several charity donors such as Next and Gap who have through their huge generosity donated goods for the children in the past.The couple who have a home in Silistra also hold other fund raising events and are gradually getting support nationwide in Bulgaria from both expats and Bulgarians alike.

Musical performances by some of the children of the orphanage, and also The Seliminski Silhouettes which consists of 12 children, will be travelling from Sliven to perform during the day. Several stalls will offer anything from selling used books to ‘guess the weight of the cake’ and raffles. Food and drink can be purchased and all proceeds will be presented to the charity.
Media coverage of this exciting yearly event will be broadcast by television and radio as well as by us here at Quest Bulgaria.

Everybody is welcome to attend, and for those who have a long distance to travel then why not consider a weekend break in this great city by the wonderful River Danube?  Accommodation discounts can be obtained by contacting This email address is being protected from spambots.
