Silistra Orphanage Garden Party – 1st October 2011

The annual garden party at the Silistra orphanage will take place on Saturday October 1st 2011.

The organisers of what has become one of Bulgaria's largest fund raising events for Bulgarian orphans, are hopeful of a good turnout and an exciting day for all who attend.

Bernadette and Douglas Leggett (pictured) have for several years now been supporting the Dimcho Debelianov Orphanage in the Bulgarian Danube town of Silistra. Fund raising events such as this one and along with liaising with some of the U.Ks largest retailers have helped provide comfort,happiness, and a much greater start in life than many of these deprived children would inevitably have had.

Both Dougie and Berni are well aware that the problem of Bulgarian orphanages and its population of under privileged  children are not isolated to the city of Silistra,but due to the location of there home in Bulgaria it just seemed to be the best place to start.Their intention however is to take there mission nationwide,and with some help from friends and sponsors of both Bulgarian,British and other nationalities they could well achieve this.

Everybody is welcome to the garden party and you are guaranteed a warm welcome from Dougie and Berni.

Here is the programme of events;
