We really appreciate your generosity, but after 25 years together we really have everything we need and the pleasure of your company at our party is more than enough. In lieu of gifts you are welcome to donate to Stand by Me - a children's charity based in Hornchurch that has rescued over 10,000 children in 11 countries. We have supported Stand by Me as a  family in a number of ways over many years. 

Your donations will be used to provide lunch for children at the Abdi Academy in Dembi Dollo, Ethiopia. The Abdi Academy meets the individual needs of over 300 children, providing education, family support, medical care and nutritious meals. It costs £7 to provide a child at the school with a nutritious lunch for a month. Regular food ensures children are healthy, strong and have enough energy to concentrate on their lessons and benefit from a great education.

Thank you for your generosity to Stand by Me on behalf of Steve and Joy's 25th Anniversary. You have made a great difference to children at the Abdi Academy in Dembi Dollo, Ethiopia, who have come from terrible backgrounds. For many of our children in Dembi Dollo, the meals they receive each day at school are the only food they will have. Our children are from desperately poor homes, have many brothers and sisters and food is scarce. To receive lunch each day at school gives them extra strength, the ability to concentrate on their lessons and better health.

The amazing total of £730 will provide lunch for our children. £7 ensures a child receives a lunch of injera every day for a month. Injera is a local food made of teff flour and provides the nutrition each child needs to thrive. In total you have provided 104 children with lunch for a month, looking after their nutrition and health.

Thank you for enabling children in our care to receive regular food, a great education and know that they are loved. 

Stand by... almost there...
